A fire broke out in a field of standing crop this afternoon in Bradwell.

Fire crews were called around 2.10pm, and were on the scene on Beccles Road at 2.19pm, where they found a two-hectare field fire.

Firefighters used hose reel jets to extinguish the fire, and were then turning over and damping down any hotspots.

The crews left by 3.20pm.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue said there was nothing to indicate the fire was started maliciously.
