Parts of supermodel Claudia Schiffer's home in Suffolk have been damaged in a blaze.

Up to 50 firefighters were called to the mansion at Coldham Hall in Lawshall on Monday.

The star has lived at the 16th century property with her husband, film producer Matthew Vaughn, since 2002. They have three children.

A number of outbuildings and stables, including a clock tower, were damaged in the fire which took crews more than two hours to extinguish, Suffolk Fire Service said.

It is understood eight fire crews managed to prevent the flames from spreading to the Grade I-listed hall.

It is not known if the family were at home.
