Does anyone know where the old wartime siren was coming from at about 4am this morning?

No, but it has woken me up. We are in Bermondsey and it sounds like it is coming from East of us. Have checked the Environment Agency website and there are no flood warnings. Not sure what else to check.

I've just done a google search - its apparently coming from a large factory fire near the Blackwall Tunnel in Greenwich.

ITV website showing photo - no doubt this will be a topic on London Tonight & local BBC news throughout today

Just called BBC London and switchboard said they have had lots of calls about it. There is a fire near the Blackwall Tunnel. Not sure what is down there that is so serious it qualifies for an air raid siren. Nothing yet on London Fire Brigade website.

London Fire Brigade website are reporting this is a chemical warehouse on fire, but state that the smoke is not harmful
