Fire crews have spent more than two hours extinguishing a barn fire just south of Bury St Edmunds.

Two crews from Bury St Edmunds and one from Elmswell were sent to the barn fire in Bradfield St George shortly after 10am this morning.

On arrival at Maypole Green Farm, crews discovered a fire in a single storey barn measuring around 20m x 50m.

A spokesman for Suffolk County Fire and Rescue Service said: “The fire is now under control and no one was inside or is in any danger.

“There was straw and wood inside the barn and crews have extinguished the majority of the fire.
