Around 40 firefighters spent more than 90 minutes tackling a fire at an Upminster farm on Sunday afternoon.

A small part of a single-storey workshop at the property on St Mary’s Lane was damaged by fire. A mound of manure was also damaged by the blaze.

Fours horses were led to safety before the brigade arrived.

Seven gas cylinders were removed to a safe area to make sure they did not become involved in the blaze.

The Brigade was called at 4.57pm and the fire was under control by 6.34pm.

Fire crews from Dagenham, Harold Hill, Romford, Wennington, Barking and Erith fire stations as well as colleagues from Essex Fire and Rescue Service attended the scene.
