Firefighters from both Dartford and Thames-side were called to out-of-control fires last night.

A Dartford crew were sent out first to a bonfire which had got out of hand at a business in Dartford Road, Dartford.

One pump was sent at 11.21pm and the crew spent around 30 minutes putting it out.

The blaze, in a field nearby, was not thought to be suspicious.
