A massive blaze has taken hold at a new block of flats in east London.

London Fire Brigade (LFB) confirmed that eighty firefighters were currently on the scene at Mace Street, Bethnall Green.

12 fire engines and around 80 firefighters are tackling a fire at a residential block under construction on Mace Street in .

Footage captured by several onlookers on Twitter shows smoke billowing out of the roof of the building, which is believed to be a block of flats currently under construction.

Speaking to the Metroeye-witness Nolan MacGregor said:

The canal walkway had been blocked off by firemen. There was  one fire engine that I could see on the bridge, south of the building. There were two firemen on the actual canal pathway itself.

People seemed to be really shocked, I heard a few people shouting 'Oh my God' and all. I also heard someone say 'not again' as they saw the fire.

Horrendous apartment block fire by Regents Canal, Victoria Park. The block appears to be unoccupied(I hope ). Police and fire brigade here

This blaze comes after another block of flats in Bethnal Green caught fire at the end of last month and while the city is still reeling after the Grenfell Tower tragedy, which left at least 80 people dead.
