A huge fire has broken out at a tyre workshop with several gas cylinders exploding due to the heat.

Some 70 firefighters were tackling the flames and local residents were being evacuated near the site in Manor Park, east London.

The majority of the industrial unit, in High Street North, was alight as the blaze told hold on Tuesday evening.

Dramatic footage showed flames tearing through the workshop as smoke billowed into the sky.
