Large fire breaks out in Royal Docks

A large fire has broken out in the Royal Docks this morning near Royal Victoria DLR station.

Smoke is evident for miles around after the blaze broke out in a house. The London Fire Brigade state: “Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters have been called to reports of a fire in Pollard Close, Canning Town.

“The Brigade was called at 1014.

“Fire crews from Plaistow, Poplar, East Ham and Millwall stations are at the scene.”


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
