Three men were injured after a lorry carrying refrigerated lamb overturned in Barking.
The articulated truck overturned around 11.30pm last night at the A406 roundabout in London Road.
One of the three drivers inside the truck suffered a serious foot injury, while the other two received cuts and grazes.
They were treated by the London Ambulance Service.
Around 50 litres of diesel had leaked from the lorry’s 400 litre tank. Fire crews stopped any further leakage and made the engine safe.
Police also attended the incident and closed one lane while the road was cleared.
A police officer has been bitten while arresting two men in Dagenham for possession of what is believed to be 135 wraps of heroin and crack cocaine.
Small companies from across Barking and Dagenham have the chance to make their mark on the capital as this year’s Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) London Business Awards were launched this week.
The fire brigade “tricked” its firefighters into breaking a national strike by exaggerating the scale of a Dagenham scrapyard blaze, apparent secret documents obtained by the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) suggest.
