Firefighters rushed to a farm near Eye after the roof of a barn containing dried herbs went up in flames.

Crews were called shortly before 11.30am today with reports of a barn fire at the site of Camstar Herbs Ltd. in Langton Green, near Eye.

The blaze is believed to have burnt through part of the insulation of the single-story structure and caused the roof to go up in flames.

Six crews were sent to the scene at Chestnut Farm - one each from Diss, Harleston, Bungay, Eye, Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds.

Firefighters are now damping down on site.
