The Ivy Spinningfields only opened a short time ago, which is why we were shocked when reports came in yesterday of a blaze on their roof top terrace.

As flames jutted out from the top of the famous building, many users took to twitter to share videos and firsthand accounts of the blaze.

Thanks to the quick and efficient response from staff, all four floors of the Ivy were evacuated in four minutes. The blaze itself was brought under control by fire services in only 20 minutes, and the damage was limited to a small section of the roof terrace.

The largest restaurant to open in the UK last year - The Ivy - has confirmed there were no injuries.

Not to let a "small" blaze stop them, the team at the Ivy were back open and ready for lunch service on their bottom floors less than 24 hours after the blaze.

Knowing the speed and efficiency of the Ivy, we are sure that they will be back up and running on roof top in no time!

Bring on those Summer rooftop bevs!
