Fire @ the Electric, Notting Hill
News reports claim at approx 2.45pm this afternoon that there was a blaze at the Electric Cinema on Portobello Road. What I saw was 12 fire engines plus 6 support vehicles, vast amounts of police vehicles & personnel, a few ambulances & a flying ambulance. A large area & many streets were blocked off. I saw many fire cranes over looking adjoining building with firemen looking for something. I saw no blaze & smelt no smoke. News reports show photos of smoke billowing from the cinema, I was almost in front of the building at this time, yet saw no smoke. These photos were taken by myself at 2.40pm outside the Electric.
