Man injured in chimney collapse
A man has been taken to hospital after being trapped in rubble when a chimney collapsed at a house.
The accident occurred at a home on Southampton Way in Camberwell, south London just before 2pm.
London Fire Brigade (LFB) station manager Bruce Grain said: "Firefighters worked in difficult conditions to safely rescue the casualty from the rubble."
London Ambulance Service said one man was taken "as a priority" to College Hospital with leg and hip injuries, and a second was receiving hospital treatment for a head injury. A woman was taken to the same hospital with a wrist injury.
A number of emergency medical crews attended the scene, including London's air ambulance.
Mr Grain added: " The urban search and rescue team stabilised the property and used line rescue inside the building to remove larger pieces of rubble enabling them to free the man."
A 25-metre hazard zone was established around the property.
The cause of the chimney collapse is not yet known, LFB said.
A fire engine from Peckham fire station and fire rescue units from Brixton, Battersea, East Ham and Croydon fire stations attended the incident.
