FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze involving a JCB at Tilbury Docks this afternoon.

Five units from Orsett, Grays and Southend were called to the incident at berth 29-30 just at 3.38pm.

Crews used about 70 litres of foam to extinguish the blaze by 4.22pm, then used one hose reel jet and a thermal imaging camera to search for and extinguish hot-spots.
