Homeowners and drivers were warned to take care in the Great Blakenham area as fire broke out in the huge landfill site in the village.

Firefighters were sent to a blaze at the site on Bramford Road in Great Blakenham.

Four crews, from Ipswich, Needham Market, and Stowmarket, were called to the incident just before 5am on Saturday.

The fire is creating a large smoke plume. Local residents are therefore being advised to keep doors and windows closed.

Motorists were also being asked to avoid the area until the smoke clears.
