Over 20 firefighters are tackling a blaze in Erith.

A shed and nearby trees are alight in Maximfeldt Road.

London Fire Brigade sent four fire engines to the scene.

One passer-by told News Shopper: "Travelling home from work I could see a think black plume of smoke in the Erith area. The smell was horrendous."

I saw thick black smoke like you'd normally see when tyres are burning.

Probably because the black smoke that could be seen was coming from the recycling plant the other side of the river in Rainham that also happened to be on fire at the same time.

I was the person who took the picture and having visited Erith and the surrounding areas frequently I knew the smell was worse than usual. :)
