The fire is raging in a tyre depot which is next to the main road and is causing delays to passengers bound for the airport.

It is thought by airport insiders that the density and proximity of the black smoke plume to the runway will cause problems for air traffic at the Heathrow.

A huge plume of black smoke can clearly be seen for miles across central London and can even be spotted from the area near the Olympic stadium.
