A man was taken to hospital after fire broke out in a Greenwich pub basement.

Around 20 firefighters tackled the blaze in a basement at the Admiral Hardy in College Approach on July 22.

According to the London Fire Brigade, 30 people left the building once the alarm was raised and one man was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service suffering from smoke inhalation.

Part of the pub basement was damaged in the fire.

Fire crews from Greenwich, East Greenwich, Lewisham and Forest Hill were called at around 8.46 and had the blaze under control around an hour later.

A brigade spokesman said: "The fire is believed to have been caused by the careless disposal of smoking materials."
