A fire has torn through buildings at a former World War II airfield in Suffolk.

More than 50 firefighters and about 12 fire engines were sent to Debach Airfield near Woodbridge on Friday night.

Industrial units, vehicles and a pile of tyres were all well-alight when crews arrived.

Firefighters took about five hours to put the flames out and will remain at the scene damping down.
