A major fire that broke out at Warner Bros.

Firefighters have put out a blaze at the Warner Bros. studio near London, where all eight Harry Potter movies were filmed, after tackling the fire for over twelve hours.

Nearby resident Mark Hancock told BBC News: "My house is only about 200m away from the perimeter fence and we have a clear line of sight over gardens so we managed to see it out one of our windows".

The studio, which is where the Harry Potter movies were made, is also the home of the Harry Potter studio tour. The first Star Wars prequel, The Phantom Menace, was also filmed at Leavesden.

Guests today have been told tours are still going ahead and to turn up as normal. This attraction, which opened in 2012 and receives up to 6,000 visitors a day, is said to be unaffected by the blaze.
