The Fire Brigade are on scene. The trouble is with these blazes is that once they begin it can be very difficult to entirely extinguish.

Tinder box conditions have led to blazes at moors and grassland nationwide, and most recently over 200 firefighters were called to Wanstead Flats near Stratford.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
