A man has been rescued from a fire at a flat in Manor Park.

The man was treated at the scene by paramedics after firefighters in breathing apparatus got him out of the three-roomed apartment in Bluebell Avenue today (July 21).

The flat on the ground floor of the building was damaged by the blaze which saw 10 people flee before the London Fire Brigade (LFB) arrived.

Crews from East Ham, Stratford and Ilford were there.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the LFB and the Met.
