Firefighters were called to a car on fire and had to refill their water tank to tackle the blaze early this morning.

The silver BMW 3 series found in Mayesbrook Park at 2am was a “total write-off” said firefighter Stuart Bidicant, who added: “The whole thing was in flames — the inside was burnt out.”

The Barking fire crew needed “a little bit of extra water” to put out the blaze near Lodge Avenue, Dagenham, and filled up from a nearby fire hydrant before bringing it under control by 2.45am.

No-one was reported to be injured.
