Firefighters tackled a fire in a crane at Tilbury Docks last night.

Four fire crews from Orsett, Grays and Rayleigh Weir raced to the scene to report the crane was well alight, at around 1.30.

Wearing breathing apparatus and using two main jets, two hose reel jets, one foam jet and a ground monitor, crews had extinguished the fire by 03:51.
