Twelve fire engines were at the scene, including two from Kent Fire and Rescue Service and Essex Country Fire Service.

Station manager Colin Parker, who was at the scene, said: “When crews first arrived they noticed that alongside the pallet yard was a large farmhouse which was in danger of being set alight.
