Explosion in a bus station in London

22 Nov 2018

A huge blaze at a depot in south-east London has destroyed 7 buses and badly damaged 4 others.

Firefighters were called out at about 03:30 GMT to the site in Farnborough Hill, Orpington.

People living nearby said they were woken by explosions.                                                           London Fire Brigade (LFB) said it had received around 40 calls about the blaze, which it described as very visible.

It took about 60 firefighters nearly three hours to get under control.

About 30 other vehicles stored at the garage were moved to prevent the flames spreading further.

Fire crews will remain in the area for some time damping down the affected vehicles, LFB said.

The brigade has warned people to avoid the area due to the number of fire engines in attendance.

There is a limited bus service running in Orpington because of the blaze, according to Transport for London.
