100 patients are evacuated from the London hospital
Around a hundred patients have been evacuated from a London hospital after a fire “100 per cent destroyed” a ground floor room.
Croydon University Hospital Accident and Emergency Department had to evacuate patients and staff after the fire broke out earlier this morning.
No one was hurt and patients who were “well enough to go home” were discharged.
The hospital said: “Our emergency department is currently closed due to a previous fire.
“We are delighted to confirm that all our patients and staff are safe and we will be reopening soon thanks to the quick work of the London Fire Brigade. However, if you require urgent or emergency care until then, please call 111.”
