Three static homes have been destroyed after a fire broke out this morning at a mobile home park in east London.

The fire, reportedly at the Elms Mobile Home Park, in Epping Forest, east London, started at about 7.30am.

Plumes of smoke could be seen for miles around coming from the site which is next to the Metropolitan Police's helicopter base.

Six fire crews were sent to the scene and are still working to ensure the fire does not spread.
