As the whole country comes together to clap for the NHS and keyworkers tonight, staff at the EADT and Ipswich Star have shown their support for those battling the virus on the frontline in a new video.
The short video shows staff members – including the editor of the EADT and Ipswich Star Brad Jones – sending their thanks and gratitude to our frontline workers who are ultimately putting their lives at risk to help others.
Like millions across the UK and worldwide, this newspaper is clapping for the carers and keworkers who are saving the lives of our loved ones and keeping the country running during the coronavirus crisis.
