Firefighters tackled a blaze in Erith throughout the night after five tonnes of scrap metal caught fire.

Six fire engines and 35 firefighters and officers were called to a fire at a scrap metal yard in Manor Road just after 3am on February 13.

It took more than three hours to get the fire under control and crews will remain there for the morning as they dampen down the site.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

Fire crews from Erith, Bexley, Plumstead and Sidcup fire stations attended the scene.
