A major blaze has broken out at Camden Market, one of the most famous markets in London, though no injuries were immediately reported, firefighters said on Saturday.

A London Fire Brigade spokesman confirmed they were tackling a "major fire" and said eight fire engines were in attendance.

They received an emergency phone call at 7:00 pm (1900 GMT).

No casualties or injuries have been reported so far, though it was not immediately clear whether anyone was trapped in the market stalls and shops when the blaze broke out.

Camden Market is a large craft and clothing market appealing to the "alternative" crowd and is a popular visitor attraction.
