How many doors do I need for an internal room?

Am looking at building an extension which would leave an internal room, no outside wall. Do I need to plan in 2 doors or door + window to another room for fire regulations? I have this funny feeling that you have to have 2 exits for fire safety?

Thankyou.

not sure if thats allowed unless its a bathroom . normally the windows have to be a certain size in relation to floor area. Local council building regs should help.

Found the right people in the end, it's building control. They said that 2 doors is fine as long as you can ventilate the room ok. They seemed pretty vague as to whether a door and a window would be ok. Might go for a glass door as that'll let in the light still. Put some curtains up if needed.

Anyway, where's my invite lol?!??!?!

I was going to put curtains up inside the glass doorway of the internal room, so that the light can get in but when you want to you can close it off so you can't see the junk/spare bedroom from the lounge.

I went to pride once but didn't find what I was looking for, real life lesbians don't look the same as the ones in films!!
