There may be some disruption to your bin collections, this is a result of road closures due to a paper recycling plant fire and separate A13 incident.

Firefighters are currently tackling a fire at a paper recycling plant on River Road, Barking.

While London Fire Brigade tackle the blaze a number of roads in the area have been closed:

  • River Road

A cordon is in place and firefighters are likely to be at the scene for several hours.

In a separate incident, two lanes remain closed on the A13 Westbound carriageway between A406 North Circular / Beckton Roundabout and Wennington Interchange.
