A huge straw bale fire remains ongoing more than 24 hours after it first broke out. 

Firefighters from across Suffolk were called to Dagworth Lane in Haughley at about 10pm on Monday after about 9,000 tonnes of straw went up in flames. 

Crews remained at the scene throughout Tuesday and one appliance remains on site as of Wednesday morning.
