Four crews were called out to a barn on fire in Ditchingham this morning - but all resident farm animals were rescued and unharmed.

Norfolk fire and rescue services received the call from an agricultural building in Tunneys Lane at around 8.30am, with crews from Beccles, Bungay, Harleston and Loddon in attendance.

The fire service confirmed that both main and hose reel jets were used, supplemented by a hydrant to extinguish the flames.

Stock was returned to the station at 10.39am, meaning the incident took just over two hours to get under control.

As of 10.45am, there were still two crews on site working to “dampen down” the area.
