Mark Hancock, who lives nearby, said: "My house is about 200m away from the grounds and there is a clear line of sight in the gardens so we went to one of our windows. [19659017] "The smoke was raised in the air, and as I watched, the smoke appeared to get thick, so much so that we could see the flashing lights of the fire engines emitting thick smoke.

"It's still still strong at about 1:00 and when I wake up in the morning it's still smoldering."

He added there was a "strong smell and flavor of smoke in the air".

As the studio is a closed set no one can get close to the scene.

The studio backs on a housing estate from which you can smell a faint burning odor.

A woman who lived there said I was awakened by a strong odor at about midnight and her dog was barking and "she did not barks".

"The smell was so strong that I thought it was coming from home," she says.

Another resident said he spoke to a firefighter this morning telling him that it was "a big fire."
