Fire guts Big Breakfast house
Fire engine
Firefighters spent two hours at the scene
A fire has destroyed much of the Big Breakfast house in east London.

Twenty firefighters spent two hours trying to extinguish flames which destroyed the roof and almost half the first floor of Lock Keepers cottage in Bow on Friday morning.

A London Fire Brigade spokesman said the fire may have been started deliberately.

The house is unoccupied and no longer had a gas or electrical supply.

The fire is thought to have started on the second floor of the two-storey building.

The Channel 4 television show ended on 29 March, nearly 10 years after it was launched by then-unknowns Chris Evans and Gaby Roslin.

Lock Keepers Cottage, which has large gardens and a swimming pool, was put on the market in July and was expected to fetch 1m as a family home.
