A blaze at a waste recycling centre in Barking led to delays across roads in east London on Thursday afternoon.

London Fire Brigade is currently on the scene at River Road where officers believe 100 tonnes of household rubbish is alight.

Transport for London said surrounding road closures are causing problems on the A13 at Alfreds Way, with tailbacks to Canning Town.
