Live updates as firefighters scramble to rescue worker who fell from ladder on Tottenham tower block

The London Fire Brigade has been deployed to an estate in Tottenham to rescue a worker injured when he fell from a ladder on a Tottenham tower block.

The building is the Debden Block of the Broadwater Farm estates on Gloucester Road.

Firefighters are attempting to rescue a man who has fallen off a ladder and is on the fifth floor.

Pictures from the scene show two fire engines with crews working on the rescue.

A crane can be seen being raised up to attend to the worker while several other firefighters look on from the top of the building.

The crane contains a stretcher, though it is not clear if the injured worker has been moved yet.

Fire crews were called at just before 11.30am.
