Model Schiffer's home hit by fire

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

Up to 50 firefighters were called to the mansion at Coldham Hall in Lawshall, Suffolk, 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.

Set in 40 acres, the couple reportedly paid £5 million for the hall.
