I'm glad to see that everyone was safely rescued. However, I'm not altogether surprised to read about this as the venue does have recent 'form'. This 2012 article notes that the owner "has been repeatedly reprimanded for safety violations over the construction of his 'Flamin' Steak Grill' eatery and apartment block in Hoe Street, Walthamstow"... http://www.guardian-
