Little fire engine keeps an eye on Atlantic Road, Brixton

This is so cute! Yesterday, central Brixton was packed full of fire engines dealing with a major incident at the Footlocker store on Brixton Road.

Although all the fire engines had left by lunchtime today, the area was still cordoned off and I noticed this tiny little engine by the blocked-off entrance to Atlantic Road.

It’s like the Fire Brigade have left a little friend behind to keep an eye on things!

With the fire finally put out, the Footlocker building now looks a very sorry site, and I don’t expect it will be reopening for a very, very long time.

Even the ‘love wall‘ has suffered damage, with the words ‘Brixton’ and ‘One Love’ more or less vanishing from the hoardings.
