A fire on a boat at the marina in Wherstead has been extinguished by crews.

Two appliances from Princes Street and one appliance from Ipswich East were sent after the call came in at 10.20am.

On arrival crews discovered a small fire in the engine compartment caused by the header tank overheating.

They used a hose reel and thermal imaging camera to bring the incident under control at 10.49am.
