At least three people have have been killed in an explosion at a four-storey building on the Calle Toledo in Madrid.

The windows of a hotel were shattered and other buildings have been evacuated. Nine firefighter teams are on the scene, and bars in the area are giving shelter to fifty residents of a care home next to the building who had to be evacuated. There is also a school nearby; it has issued a statement saying that all pupils were fine.
