collapsed, bystanders in tears.
Was just there yesterday blabbing on about how much I love the building. Hope everyone is ok!
Fucking heartbreaking given how much the building itself is a part of what makes it so special.
Ahhhh, fuck, fuck, fuck
Oh man, this is depressing.
editor, are these your photos or are you getting them elsewhere? Just wondering if you're on the scene.
hope there's no/few casualties...
Awful news, was wondering what was on fire after seeing the smoke from Vauxhall Bridge.
Full photo report here:
Major fire breaks out at Battersea Arts Centre – photos capture tower collapse
It's heartbreaking stuff.
They're mine. I was on the scene and have just got back. I was really upset watching this.
i'm not surprised what was the reason for the scaffolding?
Jees, how very sad. A beautiful building. There were plans a foot to do it up and move whats left of the wandsworth museum there.
It was being renovated
Sounds like there have been no casualties, thankfully. Awful news.
They're great photos but that's cold comfort. It's a bloody shame to see the BAC go up like that.
I was actually shaking because I was trying to hold back the tears. I love old Victorian buildings like this, and seeing the tower collapse was horrible. Some twat behind me starting clapping and laughing. I wanted to deck him.
All around me there were workers and locals in floods of tears watching the fire. It was horrible.
I can only imagine.
I'm sure others have a far closer and more profound relationship with the BAC, but it really is one my favourite places in London. At least we know there will be a lot of support in the rebuilding effort. It'll have such an impact on their plans though
Fuck sake theres some right twats out there.
Blimey - it takes a special sort of wanker to applaud a burning building - what a cunt
One of my best friend's got married there - it's a beautiful building.
Such a shame, been to some great stuff there. I hope they can rebuild what is a beautiful space
