Firefighters are expected to battle a blaze engulfing an industrial bakery throughout the night to prevent it spreading to neighbouring factory units.

Fuel sources, including a 2,000-litre diesel tank, have been isolated, the London Fire Brigade said, and firefighters are using jets to prevent the blaze spreading.

Crews were confronted with a large fire when they arrived and are now working hard to confine it to the bakery and stop it from spreading to any neighbouring factory units.

There is some fuel stored on site but crews have isolated the supply and it is not involved in the fire.
