Armed police and a large number of other emergency services have been spotted dealing with an incident.

Ten police cars, other unmarked police cars, three fire engines and several ambulances and paramedic vehicles have gathered on the junction of Brentwood Road and Heath Road, in Chadwell St Mary.

It's unclear what the teams are responding too at this stage. Reports suggest that a police officer that is in charge at the scene of the incident has assured residents who live nearby that they are in no danger.

The large number of emergency services has understandably caused concern with residents.

Essex Police, the fire and ambulance service have been contacted for comment on the incident.
