Shoreham Power Station fire

Firefighters were called to the gas suppression plant next to the main building around 8:30pm last night.

Six fire engines went along to tackle the flames which West Sussex Fire Service have told Heart were in the roof space and had not affected the power station's main turbine generator hall.

Everyone in the building was accounted for.

Gary Towson, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service spokesman, said "There have been no injuries and no loss of power to anyone in the area.

"We have quite a lot of calls because the fire is in the roof space and you can see it from the road.''

On Monday, 120 firefighters were called to a severe fire at Tilbury Power Station in Essex, which broke out in a fuel storage area at 7.45am.

Nobody was injured in the blaze and all employees were accounted for, but Chief Fire Officer David Johnson from Essex County Fire and Rescue Service (ECFRS), said it was one of the most challenging fires he had dealt with in his 20-year career.
