Traffic reports say the South Circ is blocked at junction of Dulwich Common and Lordship Lane due to a "serious fire".

Sounds like the Harvester/Grove Tavern. Anyone know any more detail?

The South Circular is solid up to the Harvester coming from Dulwich College yet Lordship Lane is open.

I can't see from my vantage point nearby if the pub is on fire or not.

Friends living close to the Harvester report on twitter that they cannot see or smell fire. Lordship Lane open but serious queues of traffic on the South Circular with people trying to get to Forest Hill from Dulwich.

Apparently the fire involved the tennis club on Dulwich Common.

Sad news - the tennis clubhouse at Camber on FH/Dulwich border has been burned down as part of an attempted burglary. Police are investigating.

The courts are unharmed but the club needs to be rebuilt and evening play isn't possible at the moment because the floodlights aren't operational.
