A huge fire ripped through a warehouse, sparking fear among neighbours and causing travel disruption.

The blaze, which happened at Pacestar Joinery in Chantry Place on September 15, led to a series of explosions.

One man, Vikas Jain, thought it might be a terrorist attack as he watched the flames erupt from the building and saw smoke billow towards his home.

Firefighters had the situation under control by the morning, with 12 people evacuated from nearby houses.

The great and the good of Harrow were celebrated at the annual ‘Harrow’s Heroes’ event.

Run by the council and staged at the Kadwa Patidar Centre, a number of community prizes were handed out to a host of worthy winners.

And residents were assured that South Harrow Police Station will stay open despite fears that it would fall victim to government cuts.

Pressure from community activists and politicians means that a 24-hour station will remain in operation going forward.
