Patients are being moved from a London hospital after a fire broke out on the top floor of the building.

Eight fire engines and 40 firefighters are attending the blaze at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Fulham Road, Chelsea, west London.

Reminds me of the George Carlin piece.. "I wanna see people jumping from hospitals on crutches, and people rolling off the roof on wheelchairs."

And out comes my twisted sense of humor..  crazy 
Something awful.

LOL...you sick puppy!

Seriously though, the Marsden is a great hospital...my brother in law was in there a year or two back. I hope they manage to sort things out before too much damage is done.

the BBC were also sharing your sense of humour during the coverage - at one point they switched to a split screen layout. On the right: live coverage of the burning hospital. On the left? David Cameron giving a speach at a conference in Manchester about "A Stronger NHS"... I wonder if anyone at the beeb realised the irony?

I totally echo that my mum received brilliant care last year, hope everything gets back to normal as soon as possible
