Four fire engines and over 20 officers attended a blaze on the banks of the River Lea last night.

A 25 foot long river boat moored near Bream Close, Tottenham had caught alight and was badly damaged.

The Fire brigade were responding to a call from a member of the public, who’d heard an explosion.

The fire was under control in less than two hours.

Crew Manager Steve Hardy who was at the fire said: ‘A propane gas cylinder inside the boat was cooled down and made safe.’

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
