Firefighters are tackling a blaze at a cafe in a theme park.

Eight fire engines are on the scene at Creaky Cafe at Chessington World of Adventures Resort in Surrey, the London Fire Brigade said.

A control officer said: "There is an eight pump fire at Creaky Cafe."

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said there were no reports of any injuries.

"There are some road closures in place to ensure people are kept a safe distance away," he added.

The London Ambulance Service said it received a call about the fire at 9am and sent emergency response crews to the scene.

In a message to its followers on Twitter, Chessington said: "Due to unforeseen circumstances Chessington will be closed today.

"Tickets for today will be revalidated. Further updates will follow."
