Firefighters were called to Dunwich Forest this afternoon to douse a campfire which had been left unattended.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to the forest just before 2.45pm on Sunday after receiving reports of a blaze.

Four fire crews, from Aldeburgh, Leiston and Southwold, rushed to the scene and put out a fire near a picnic area.

A stop was called by the fire service shortly after 3.45pm after a spokesman confirmed the blaze was “under control”.
