London club Studio 338 looks to have been destroyed by a fire that broke out at the venue this morning.

An aerial image shot by BBC News shows the rear of the club, which contains its famed Ibiza-style terrace dancefloor, to be severely damaged.

This part of the club was newly refurbished earlier this year and is contained within a steel and glass 'atrium' complete with balconies that overlook the dancefloor and a VOID soundsystem. The image shows the structure to have been blackened by fire.

Earlier today we reported that up to 100 firefighters were tackling the blaze and images shared on social media confirm how big the fire was. It also spread to a recycling yard and warehouses next to Studio 338.

A man was airlifted to hospital having been rescued from the venue by firefighters, while nearby roads were closed due to smoke, which could be seen from across London.

London Fire Brigade began to receive emergency calls about the fire at 11.45am today and the fire looks like it has ravaged the venue, which is a firm fixture of the capital's clubbing landscape and hosts parties by house and techno promoters such as Elrow, Fuse and Space Ibiza.

Studio 338 has released one tweet in the wake of the fire and we are waiting for a full statement from the club.

London Fire Brigade says it will be working at the scene for the rest of the day.
