Around 60 firefighters have brought a blaze at a builders’ storage unit in Plaistow under control. 

Half of the building was alight in Barking Road, near the community centre, at around 9.15am this morning. 

The storage facility has been badly damaged by the blaze.

“Firefighters worked extremely hard in arduous conditions to bring the blaze under control,” said Station Commander Jason Oliff, who was at the scene. 

“The fire produced a lot of thick black smoke so we asked local residents to close their doors and windows.”
