Station Commander Dave Hill, who was at the scene, said: "This was a very challenging fire for crews due to its location on an industrial estate, which made access challenging at times.

“It was also a very visible fire which created a lot of smoke. Firefighters worked extremely hard in tough conditions to bring the fire under control."

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Metropolitan Police.
