"I was optimistic they would get it under control or contain it on one level, but it just spread," Ms Thomas said.

The Mayor thanked emergency crews for their efforts but used the fire to highlight recent budget cuts to fire services.

He suggested the blaze could have been contained had more fire engines and firefighters been available to attend the scene.

Mr Anderson said two fire crews first attended the fire, but two years ago eight fire engines would have responded.

About 300 officers and 12 fire engines across four local fire stations were lost to cuts in recent years, he said.

"It's on such occasions when the reality of budget cuts becomes all too apparent," Mr Anderson said in a letter to the Minister of State for Policing and the Fire Service, Nick Hurd.
