A huge fire broke out in London after a paint factory inferno led to a "fireball in the sky".

The London Fire Brigade said 15 fire engines and 90 firefighters were at the scene in Staples Junction, a major junction the north of the city.

Officers said a paint factory went up in flames, with the inferno lighting up the skies across the north of the capital.

An entire single storey warehouse was alight, according to London Fire Brigade.

Factory workers had already left the building before crews arrived, it was confirmed.

One woman described seeing a "fireball in the sky" and videos show an enormous blaze off the side of the North Circular Road.

Achal Dhillon who lives in Hendon, less than half a mile from the scene, said the fire was burning "quite violently" for more than 30 minutes.
