Children's centre to remain closed following Orchard Estate fire in Woodford Green
A children's centre is to remain closed until Monday following a fire at a tower block.
A tenth floor flat in Liston Road, Woodford Green, was destroyed when the blaze broke out on Saturday.
Two people were treated for smoke inhalation but there were no other reports of injuries.
The children's centre was closed in the aftermath of the fire due to flood damage from fire-fighters' hoses.
Council staff inspected the site on Monday and the authority has since announced that the facility will not now reopen until the following Monday.
Redbridge Council says one of the block's lifts is now working while work has been carried out to fix the other.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
