One fire crew was called to the scene

Firefighters were required to work at height to extinguish a large fire in a chimney at a home in Bures this afternoon.

The crew, from Sudbury,found the chimney to be well alight when they arrived at the scene at around 4pm.

They had initially been using chimney rods in a bid to control the flames, however soon had to use a roof ladder, a nine metre ladder and working at height equipment to extinguish the fire from the roof of the property, on Assington Road, after difficulty in accessing the whole chimney stack.

Crews spent around three hours removing the fire place to gain better access to the chimney.

The fire was confirmed as being extinguished at 8pm, and the crew had returned to their base in Sudbury soon after 8.30pm.

A woman was recovering in hospital on Sunday after her car left the A137 at Tattingstone during the early hours of the morning.

Two people, reportedly including a 14-year-old boy were taken to hospital in separate stabbing incidents last night.

A young woman was left unconscious and needing hospital treatment after being subjected to a “despicable” sexual assault, police have said.

My husband is never referred to as a “working father”, writes Ellen Widdup.

There is nothing work than getting stuck in traffic jams caused by roadworks.

The southbound carriageway of the A11 near Barton Mills was closed yesterday after a three-vehicle crash.

The last day of February this year will see people across the country indulging in a pancake or two.
