Firefighters have a grass fire in Suffolk under control as the region continues to bake under the hot weather.

The fire, affecting about 100 square metres of grass, started at around 2.15pm and is affecting part of the land next to Stoven Road in Uggeshall, near Brampton.

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.
