A fire which raged into the early hours destroyed a barn.

Five engines were called to the fire, in Pentlow Lane, near Sudbury on Friday, January 4 - including two from Halstead in Essex, one from Sudbury, one from Long Melford and one from Clare.

When crews arrived, they reported the whole barn was alight.

Firefighters were worried that several large cylinders that were kept inside the barn could be volatile and so they worked quickly to remove them before cooling them away from the blaze.

They then worked on extinguishing the fire but the barn collapsed and was completely destroyed.

The fire was extinguished at 2.30am and the cause of the fire is unknown.
