Emergency services rushed to the partial collapse of a roof in Manor Park this week. 

London Fire Brigade (LFB), London Ambulance Service (LAS), and the Met Police were called to a building on Romford Road at about 1pm on March 31.

They found the roof of the two-storey building - which is used by a shop on the ground floor and flats above - had partially collapsed into a loft space.

A 25 metre cordon was set up as a precaution.

Firefighters searched the building and used an aerial ladder to scan the exterior from above.
