An outbuilding in Bromley has been destroyed following a huge fire.

Firefighters were called to Anerley Hill, Crystal Palace at around 11am this morning (Monday, December 4).

Two fire engines and ten firefighters were called to the blaze.

A single-storey outbuilding which London Fire Brigade estimates was around 13 metres by five metres, was destroyed by the fire.

No injuries were reported.

The fire was under control by around 1pm and its cause is under investigation.

As the fire was put out, police at the scene closed the road, causing a build up of traffic.
