A Suffolk church has been lit up in blue as the community comes together to thank NHS staff fighting against the Covid-19 outbreak.
The Holy Trinity Church, in Middleton near Saxmundham, is usually illuminated during nighttime - but electrician Michael Kennedy changed the lightbulbs to a different colour.
The church now stands as a blue beacon of support for health workers on the frontline as the community rallies together during the coronavirus pandemic.
Neighbours in the village have welcomed the change of colour, according to co-church warden Rita Pateman.
She said: “We thought it would be a really nice thing to do. It is nice to show that we really care about health workers.
