Original story: 18 fire crews and around 75 fire fighters are now tackling a blaze at Warner Bros studios in Leavesden, after a fire broke out last night.

In a further update this morning, Hertfordshire County Council said the number of fire crews at the scene had swelled to 18. "There are no injuries".

All eight of the Harry Potter films were filmed at Leavesden, along with other movies including some in the James Bond, Fast and Furious and Mission Impossible franchises.

The studio, which is the place the Harry Potter motion pictures had been made, can also be the house of the Harry Potter studio tour.

"The smoke went high into the air, and as I watched, the smoke appeared to get thicker, so much so that we could see the flashing lights of the fire engines reflecting off the thick smoke", he said. "When I woke up this morning it was still smoldering and when I left for work this morning, there was still a strong smell and taste of smoke in the air".

A spokeswoman later said: "The fire at Warner Bros Studios is now out but several vehicles remain on site".
