Firefighters extinguished a chimney fire in Ashfield-Cum-Thorpe last night.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to the incident, at a property in The Street, at 9.47pm.

A crew from Debenham attended the scene and used chimney rods, a thermal imaging camera and a short extension ladder to extinguish the blaze.

A spokesman for the fire service said: By 10.27pm the incident was under control and the fire service had left the scene by 10.36pm.”

The Orwell Bridge has reopened this morning after 80mph winds battered Suffolk and brought its closure.

Several schools in Suffolk are to remain closed or open later this morning amid high winds.

Across Suffolk, dozens of bands, singers, solo acts, choirs and orchestras ply their trade on evenings and weekends as part of the county’s eclectic night time economy.

High winds have led to rail service cancellations including on the mainline from Suffolk and Essex to London and local routes between Sudbury and Marks Tey.

High winds have brought down overhead power cables leaving homes in many Suffolk and Essex communities without electricity.

A well known west Suffolk pub has suddenly closed its doors after the district council received a licence review application from police, stating the premises was ‘associated with serious crimes and disorder’.
