A fire broke out in a workshop at Pinewood Studios in Iver Heath Thursday evening (18 November).

Firefighters from Gerrards Cross, Langley, Slough, Beaconsfield, Hillingdon, Windsor, Hayes and Heathrow used four main jets and an aerial appliance to tackle the large fire which damaged 100 per cent of the single storey building. About 25 per cent of a second building was also damaged.

Local police helped by providing a thermal imaging drone and the scene was also attended by South Central Ambulance Service, but fortunately, no one was injured.

Berkshire Fire & Rescue Service continued to use thermal imaging cameras yesterday to monitor for hotspots, using a hose reel jet to damp them down. They left the site at 1pm yesterday afternoon.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.
