From the London Fire Brigade website:

Uxbridge - shed fire
25 February 2017


Four fire engines and around 20 firefighters and officers were called to a fire in a shed at a business park in Access Road, Uxbridge.
A shed was completely damaged by fire. One 19kg propane cylinder was removed by fire crews and cooled to an ambient temperature.
The Brigade was called at 1719 and the fire was under control at 1748. Fire crews from Hillingdon, Hayes and Heathrow fire stations attended the scene.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.

I (& Google) have never heard of 'Access road' and am wondering if it's a typo or an amusing cock up as numerous roads in the Boro have access roads to the rear

Does anyone know it????

It wouldn't be the first address cock up: When I was in the fire service, we used had hideous & often undecipherable dot matrix to print our call details.
In the early hours we got a call to 8 & 9 Uxbridge Road. We scoured the Uxbridge Road from Southall to Uxbridge but could find nothing. However, another more detailed look at the slip of paper revealed the poor quality print out actually said 'B&Q' (printed as B&q) which looked like 8 & 9. Thankfully it was a false alarm!! :)

On another occasion, we struggled to find Dere House on a street in central London (The call was to Dere House Alight). It turned out the person typing the call decided to abbreviate the word 'derelict' - whoops!!
