FIREFIGHTERS tackled a large blaze at an industrial unit in Essex overnight.

Two crews were initially sent to the incident in Plough Road, Great Bentley, just after midnight but on arrival, called for more help.

The unit was well alight and so firefighters from Weeley, Brightlingsea and Clacton used two main jets to tackle the fire.

The incident was dealt with by 1.30am but two crews remained on the scene damping down to ensure the fire was fully extinguished.
