A bus fire opposite the Woolwich Arsenal this morning caused travel problems this morning.

Plumstead Road was reduced to just one lane eastbound following the fire on board a route 472 bus.

The Met Police and London Fire Brigade were both called to the fire at around 5.45am this morning.

One fire engine was dispatched and the fire was out  10 minutes later. Emergency services then managed to restrict the scene to the bus stop, re-opening the closed lane.

Nobody was injured.
