Fire crews spent nearly an hour tackling a blaze in an outbuilding attached to a derelict pub this afternoon.

The building, which was destroyed by the flames, is connected to The Pompadours pub, in Edenhall Road, Harold Hill, which closed last year and was also hit by a fire less than two years ago.

A spokesman for the London Fire Brigade said: “We were called at 4.07pm. A derelict single story outbuilding was gutted by the fire.

“It was under control at 5.06pm. Three fire engines attended.”

There have been no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
