Labour's headquarters at one Brewers Green have been evacuated after a fire nearby.
Staff evacuated the building in Westminster and London Fire Brigade attended the scene, however, the incident is not serious.
Apparently the Labour HQ fire alarm didn't go off. So the first they knew about the flames was when they saw the exit poll.— Robert Hutton (@RobDotHutton) September 14, 2015
