The Fire Brigade was called to Eltham High Street last night to reports that a bin was alight.

Officers were called at 5.22pm to St Mary's Place just off the high street yesterday (May 14).

Despite the reports talking about a bin on fire, people on social media have suggested that it was actually the belongings of a homeless person.

One fire engine was sent and the fire was out within half an hour.

More information as we get it.
