BBC news is reporting a Helicopter has crashed into a building, or possibly a crane in the Vauxhall area of Southwest London. Very few details so far. Unfinished construction, crane collapsed, within three blocks of MI6 HQ, near to Bus/Train Station, opposite Houses of Parliament

Misty conditions, explosions reported, evacuations underway, emergency services on the scene, first pics emerging, BBC reporter now at the scene.

Initial alert to emergency services 0800 GMT. Most construction workers start work at this time, rush hour traffic involved.

Because when it was reported there was no indication to the nature of the incident. I am sure the mods will take the appropriate action.

There's a lot f low lying fog around today,so hitting a crane makes sense. Police say too early to say reasons.

It is confirmed two fatalities, and two injured, absolute tragedy. It could also be said considering the location, and time of this incident it is a relief to see that there are not many more fatalities, and injuries.

Yeah he's ok, his firm is right near where it happened all his staff are ok. My thoughts go out to all affected it must have been horrible seeing that.

Apparently the crane driver was late for work, first time in years.

The police are gonna do an update in a while.
