FIREFIGHTERS are at the scene of a blaze in west Suffolk this morning.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service received reports of a building fire in Piperill Way, Haverhill just before 5.40am.

Two crews were sent to the address following calls of smoke coming from the property and found a single-storey storage unit heavily smoke-logged.

Firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, determined that a car was alight within the building.

They used two hose reels and one jet to fight the flames which were brought under control by just after 7am.
