Actress Joanna Lumley and Lebanon hostage Terry Waite have paid tribute to a Suffolk writer for laying bare the horrors of the Second World War with powerful, untold testimonies from soldiers who served in it.
She was a "very, very special" woman who taught generations of Ipswich hairdressers to be a cut above the rest. And now heartfelt tributes of flowers and cards are pouring in following the death of legendary hairdressing tutor Valerie Hutchison.
It is often said parents can make all the difference to a child's education and upbringing. But now an Ipswich school has recognised the contribution grandparents can make with a special day for the older generation.
