Footage has captured a huge straw stack ablaze in mid Suffolk in an incident that sparked a large fire service callout.

The fire broke out in a field in Dagworth Lane in Haughley, near Stowmarket, at 10pm on Monday after 8,000 to 9,000 tonnes of straw caught light. 

The video, captured by a crew from Needham Market fire station, has revealed the scale of the blaze.

Fire crews tackled the blaze throughout the night and four crews still remained on scene on Tuesday morning. 

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said that the crews are likely to be there for the majority of the day as they make sure the fire dampens down.
