Sadly a man has died in a house fire on Swedenborg Gardens in Wapping.
Firefighters rescued a man from a room on the ground floor of a mid-terraced two-storey house. A second man left the property before the Brigade arrived. Both were treated at the scene by the London Ambulance Service and taken to hospital, where one man sadly later died.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Brigade and the Metropolitan Police Service.
