FIREFIGHTERS were called to a blaze last night in Longfield after a propane cylinder went up in flames.

Two crews from Dartford and one crew from Swanscombe fire brigade were called to Fawkham Road at 11pm after a bonfire was left unattended and the nearby cylinder set alight.

Firefighters took around 45 minutes to put out the fire.

They advise people not to leave bonfires unattended.
