Some 20 fire crews are tackling the blaze in Barking

A huge fire has broken out at a wholesale warehouse in east London.

Plumes of black smoke could be seen billowing across London from the site of the blaze in Barking.

Nad Nazir, who lives nearby, was out walking when he saw the building engulfed in flames and dialled 999.

About 120 firefighters have been tackling the fire on an industrial estate next to the A13. London Fire Brigade was called to the scene on Alfreds Way just after 18:30 BST.

Mr Nazir, a 36-year-old journalist, was out walking when he spotted what he thought was a small house fire.

He said: “When I arrived there were just a few flames and then all of a sudden it was engulfed and completely set alight.”

He said the building was among a cluster of warehouses and he did not know which one it was or what it contained.
