Fire crews tackle blaze involving dockside crane at Port of Tilbury

ESSEX Firefighters were called to reports of a fire involving a crane at Tilbury docks on Saturday afternoon.

On arrival, crews confirmed that a dockside crane was completely alight.

To prevent fuel reaching the open water, a sandbank was created using an on-site mechanical digger.

The fire was extinguished completely by 5.30pm. We believe the fire was caused accidentally by an electrical fault.
