Crews received reports of a fire at the Brett Works site in Pound Lane, Hadleigh, at 10.29pm.

When they arrived they found the derelict building, which measured 10m by 50m, was 100% involved in fire.

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire Service said four appliances from Ipswich and Hadleigh were called to the scene.

One eyewitness, who wanted to remain anonymous, said: “We live about a mile away and we could smell the smoke from there. There seems to be a lot of fire engines and a huge amount of smoke and they have closed the High Street.”

In March this year a huge fire ripped through the site which led to 10 crews being called to the scene.
