A fire that began in a shed has destroyed a garden in Bury St Edmunds.

Neighbours were alerted by flames and dense smoke from the site in Hardwick Lane yesterday evening.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service received multiple calls to the fire and once on-site requested more help to tackle the spreading flames.

The blaze had engulfed four sheds, seven metres of conifers and 20 metres of fencing.

The crews, from Bury St Edmunds and Wickhambrook, gained control of the fire very quickly and used four hose reels to extinguish it.
