Mr Singh, 38 from Emerson Park in Hornchurch was driving back from Harvester when he and his family saw the flames.

He said: “There was loads of black smoke and there were people hanging out of the windows screaming for their lives.

“My concern was just to help the people that were in distress.

“There were so many members of the public that helped. A builders van pulled up and the driver got out a ladder to help the people escape.
