Outdoor fire

Firefighters have dealt with a car fire inside in Blackwall Tunnel.

The vehicle overheated while going southbound. There is heavy traffic in the area so firefighters are asking people to avoid the area if possible.

The Brigade was called at 1356 and the fire was under control by 1422. Fire crews from Millwall, Plaistow, East Greenwich and Greenwich fire stations attended the scene.
