Firefighters have warned that Ealing Road in Wembley is likely to be closed for “the next few hours” as they tackle a fire this evening (August 13).

The London Fire Brigade warned: “Residents are advised to keep their doors and windows shut due to the smoke and avoid the area as there is heavy traffic congestion.”
