Clapping and cheering could be heard far and wide across Suffolk as neighbourhoods came together in an inspiring show of appreciation of frontline NHS staff fighting coronavirus.
The virus - officially known as COVID-19 - has swept through the nation and county, with 35 confirmed cases so far in Suffolk.
In response, people have been showing their appreciation by stepping outside their homes briefly to clap and bang items at 8pm on Thursday - all while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
The movement gathered momentum on social media, with #ClapForNHS trending on Twitter earlier in the day.
And NHS staff have been keen to thank the public for their support.
