Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre has been cancelled for the second time.
The fayre was cancelled for the first time in 2020 due to concerns around the coronavirus.
West Suffolk Council said in March last year that it needed to deploy staff who would normally be working on the fayre's planning and preparation to concentrate on work to beat the coronavirus.

A spokesman for West Suffolk Council said in March this year that although it was still "too early to comment" on plans for the fayre.
