Close-up video footage shows yesterday's huge fire tearing through an industrial estate in Rainham.

It took firefighters almost five hours to bring the blaze in Ferry Lane under control yesterday (June 20) afternoon, after being called at 1.11pm.

The above footage shows the fire engulfing huge swathes of an industrial building and producing a vast amount of billowing smoke, spotted for miles around the site.

About 125 firefighters were sent to Ferry Lane in 20 fire engines from stations across east London, given the extent of the blaze.
