Fire burned through a barn full of straw overnight in a west Suffolk village.

Firefighters from Bury St Edmunds and Wickhambrook attended the incident in Ousden at around 12.15am this morning.

On arrival crews decided to let the fire, at a 9m x 50m barn in Dalham Road, burn, and kept a watching brief until the early hours of this morning.
