More than 50 firefighters were called to the farm in Ilketshall St Andrew near Beccles at lunchtime.

There was concern about possible asbestos and a fuel tank in the building. Suffolk Fire warned people to stay clear while they were tackling the blaze.

The large plume of smoke from the fire was seen for miles around.
