Firefighters battling blaze at recycling centre in Barking

Residents have spotted smoke coming from the area 

Firefighters are at the scene of a fire at a recycling centre in Barking. 

Around six fire engines and 40 firefighters were called to the incident in Thames Road at around 1.30pm today. 

They are working to extinguish the blaze after around 100 tons of metal recycling caught fire. 

Station Commander Colin Digby, who is at the scene, said: “Crews are working hard in hot weather to bring the fire under control.

“It’s an arduous job due to nature of the fire, where hotspots remain in the piles of metal, and because it’s so warm.

“On-site diggers are being used to lift up and pull out the metal so jets can be put onto the hotspots.”

It is not yet known how the fire started. 

Crews from Barking, East Ham and Plaistow are at the scene.
