Firefighters were forced to spend roughly an hour tackling a fire which broke out at a run-down clothing factory in Croydon.

The London Fire Brigade was called to reports of a blaze at the building, in Waddon Marsh Way, just after 5.40am on July 3.

A small part of the roof and ground floor of the building were affected as crews from Croydon, Norbury, Wallington, and Woodside stations rushed to the scene.

No injuries were reported by the London Fire Brigade as the fire came under control shortly before 6.40am.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation, a spokesman for the brigade said.
