The Fire Brigade were called to put out a raging bush fire, in Valentines Park, Ilford, just after midday.

Four firefighters, from Ilford fire station, attended the scene, where smoke dramatically billowed into the air as they doused the flames.

The blaze appeared to only damage a hedge, with the surrounding greenery avoiding trouble.

No bystanders were hurt.
