This was a scene from the roof of the JC’s London headquarters yesterday shortly before it was evacuated as a fire broke out at a neighbouring building.
Staff were ordered to leave by police who placed a cordon around a large block between Chancery Lane and fetter Lane. It was feared that gas cylinders on the roof of offices used for immigration tribunals may explode.
Having managed to shoot footage such as this, they joined thousands of office workers who lined the streets for several hours, awaiting a call to return. Meanwhile, the film was screened on Sky News.
