Large fire service response to incident in Norwich Road and Beaufort Street, Ipswich





A large number of firefighters were called to an incident at a block of flats in Ipswich.

Twelve engines were alerted to Cumberland Towers, an 11-storey building in Norwich Road, at 4.10pm.

A Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said it was a relatively small fire in a bin store but a large number of engines were called due to it being at a high-rise building.
