Crews from Ilford and Barking took around 20 minutes to extinguish the fire in Connaught Road which was reported at 2.30pm.

A spokesman for Ilford Fire Station said: “The garage had tyres in it so there was quite a lot of black smoke

“The fire had spread to nearby fences and took about 20 minutes to get under control.”

The cause is being investigated.
