People are being warned to close windows and doors due to a fire at a Suffolk recycling centre.

Firefighters were called at about 1300 BST on Sunday to the fire in a large metal shed on the A1307 at Haverhill.

Crews from Haverhill, Wickhambrook, Bury St Edmunds, Ixworth and Linton in Cambridgeshire have been involved.

A Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said a "copious amount" of black smoke was heading south-west towards Helions Bumpstead in Essex.

Firefighters were attempting to get on to the roof of the building using a turntable ladder.
