A fire erupted at Wimbledon’s famous tennis courts in London.
This is coming just weeks before the grand slam tournament is due to take place at the venue in SW19.
The fire, which broke out at the practice courts, close to Gate 1, has since been extinguished. The cause of the outbreak is still unknown.
About a tonne of mixed building materials, up to 20m (65ft) of hedgerow and a small section of a temporary marquee were damaged in the blaze in Church Road, Wimbledon, the fire brigade said.
This year’s championship takes place for two weeks beginning 3rd of July.
