Firefighters spent 45 minutes battling burning manure down a country lane in Upminster early this morning (Friday, February 9).

A London Fire Brigade spokesman confirmed firefighters from Hornchurch were called to Parks Farm Road at 6.20am to reports of manure alight.

It took the team 45 minutes to bring the fire under control, and the LFB declared the incident over at 7.05am.

The road was temporarily closed while the fire was dealt with.

There are no reported injuries.
