Crews tackle fire at old garrison in Colchester

More than 30 firefighters have been called to a blaze at a former garrison in Essex.

The fire is close to the site of a blaze which destroyed the Officers' Club at the old Colchester Garrison in July, the fire service said.

Crews were called at 1920 BST and found a wooden building well alight. Roads around the site were cordoned off and have since been re-opened.

The fire was prevented from spreading to an adjacent abbey.
