Plans to demolish a farmhouse that was destroyed in a huge fire have been given the green light. 

Ten crews from across Suffolk were called to the blaze in Saxmundham on Monday, April 18. 

Half of the roof of the building at Wood Farm collapsed as a result of significant damage.

Pictures from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service at the time showed the extent of the blaze.

East Suffolk Council has given the go-ahead for the Grade II listed building to be demolished following an assessment carried out in July.

In documents submitted to the council, the "structure of the west end of the original building has been completely destroyed by the fire".

A fire assessment report added: "The fire has severely damaged the west wing and although the feature gable wall on the west gable has been expressed as part of the main character of the building, the severity of damage both historically from damp and that enhanced by the fire, means that the wall is unstable and I can only recommend that it is taken down."
