"Fifteen fire engines, plus support vehicles, are now in attendance at the scene and crews are tackling a fire in one of the stages there".

James Bond, Batman and Mission Impossible were also filmed there, as well as Oscar winning Darkest Hour and Bohemian Rhapsody.

A 75-strong force and more than 15 fire engines are now fighting the inferno, which reportedly sparked at around 11:30pm last night in one of the stages.

A fire has broken out at Warner Bros studios in Watford - the famous filming location in which Harry Potter was filmed.

No injuries have been reported, and the fire is said to have started on a sound stage not now in use.

The studio, which is the place the Harry Potter motion pictures had been made, can also be the house of the Harry Potter studio tour.

Firefighters are pictured at the scene at Warner Bros.

Fire and rescue crews were called to the film studios in Hertfordshire, just outside London, late last night United Kingdom time.

Back in January, a man was rushed to hospital after allegedly being stabbed in the throat at the Warner Bros. complex in Leavesden, which is just outside London.

The incident began late on Wednesday evening, with nearby residents seeing smoke rising from the lot.

HCC says 18 fire engines and support vehicles are still at the scene as crews continue to tackle the fire.

A spokeswoman later said: "The fire at Warner Bros Studios is now out but several vehicles remain on site". "It was still going strong at about 1.00 a.m. and when I woke up this morning it was still smoldering".
