A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said they had three hose reel jets in attendance at the fire and that the fire was under control.

She added firefighters are in the process of dampening down the affected area.

Three crews attended, one from Southwold, one from Halesworth, and another from Beccles.
