Fire crews are tackling a blaze that spread from a classic car to the bungalow next door, in a village near Needham Market.

A police officer alerted the fire service about smoke coming from an address in St Marys Gardens, Creeting St Mary just before 1pm.

Four crews were sent to the scene from Princes Street in Ipswich, Debenham, Needham Market and Stowmarket. They arrived to find a vehicle, thought to be a classic car, on fire.
