Boat destroyed by fire

Firefighters were this morning called to tackle a blaze at a boatyard alongside the River Orwell.

Crews from Holbrook and Ipswich’s Princess Street stations arrived just after 7am at Webbs Boatyard, in Chelmondiston.

One boat was completely engulfed by flames, which were in danger of spreading to nearby hedging off Pin Mill Road.

The fire was prevented from developing but firefighters remain on scene to ensure the flames are fully extinguished.
