A MASSIVE fire has torn through one of Britain's most iconic film studios - home to Harry Potter and James Bond.

Warner Bros was not immediately available for comment but the BBC reports that the public studio tours are unaffected and taking place as usual.

Fire crews are still at the Warner Bros studios in Hertfordshire after a blaze broke out the night of July 10.

Warner Bros bought the site in 2010.

Mark Hancock, who lives nearby, said: "My house is only about 200m away from the perimeter fence and we have a clear line of sight over gardens so we managed to see it out one of our windows".

Smoke was seen billowing over the studios through the night and this morning, with a strong smell of smoke still in the air this morning.
