Six fire crews were called to tackle a huge grass fire close to the South Essex College campus. 

The firefighters arrived at the six acre field in Wood View, Grays,  just before 2pm today and used four hose reel jets, two beaters and two backpack sprayers to tackle the blaze.

They had put it out within 40 minutes and remained at the scene turning over and damping down.
