More than 100 firefighters have spent the night tackling a huge fire at a warehouse.

Three units went up in flames in Fowler Road, Hainault, at around 9pm (September 21).

The London Fire Brigade says it sent 20 fire engines from across east London to the scene after receiving more than 30 999 calls.

It took around 125 firefighters and nearly 12 hours to bring the fire under control.

The brigade says the destroyed warehouse is two-storey and of mixed use.

There were no injuries reported but people living in the area were asked to keep their windows and doors shut because of the amount of smoke.

Fire investigators are investigating the cause of the fire, which is expected to continue throughout the day.
