Firefighters battle huge Moulton farm fire
About 200 acres of straw stubble set alight in Moulton as the summer heatwave continued.
The field fire started at about 11.30am when temperatures climbed past 26°c as farmers at Moulton Manor Farms were bailing straw.
Around 40 firefighters and eight fire engines, including a crew from RAF Lakenheath, fought the blaze with smoke from the burning straw seen as far away as Newmarket and Soham.
Police closed Ashley Road as fire crews battled the field fire, with emergency services leaving the farm at about 2.30pm once the blaze was extinguished.
It is the latest in a string of fires as the hot weather dries out crops and fields.
