The main buildings of the Law Society in Chancery Lane will remain closed today following the fire at the weekend, the Society has confirmed.

Road closures imposed to manage the incident have now been lifted with the exception of part of Bell Yard at the rear of the building. All local businesses affected appear to have reopened. 

The blaze, which broke out during an event on Saturday night, was confined to offices in 114 Chancery Lane, including the Gazette's. 

However the Society said that the Law Society library, 113 Restaurant and the Reading Room will not be open for visitors throughout Tuesday. Further information will be posted on the Society's website later today.
