FIRE crews are currently working to contain a blaze in a north Suffolk printing premises.

Crews were called to the blaze at Clays, Broad Street, in Bungay, at just after 7am today (Friday) after receiving reports of a fire located in a binding machine.

Initially one dry powder, two water and three foam extinguishers were used, but the blaze later spread to a waster paper skip in a bailing shed.

A spokeswoman for the fire service said that the shed had become heavily smoke logged.

A further two hose reel jets and a thermal imaging camera are being used by firefighters.

The bailing shed has now been isolated by crews and firefighters are currently working to gain further access to hotspots.

The Suffolk based printers are known for printing the much-loved Harry Potter series.
