A young pupil has come up with a Covid-19 themed Monopoly board.
Isla Barker from Sproughton C of E Primary School, near Ipswich, created Covopoly as part of a home-schooling project during lockdown.
A hallmark of Monopoly is its property squares, which in Covopoly have been transformed into Pandemic Park, Zoom Lane, Boredom Boulevard and Sanitiser Street.
And instead of being told to go directly to jail, not to pass go or collect your £200 - you have to self-isolate.
The 11-year-old said: "I wanted to do something fun, and create a board game that I could play with my friends when we got back to school.
“It was hard doing schoolwork at home, and I just wanted things to get back to normal”.
Sproughton C of E Primary School teacher Lisa Sampson said: "This game is an imaginative and fun way to remind us that we must continue to be vigilant, protect the NHS, and save lives."

Isla hopes that Monopoly owner's Hasbro might take the idea and use it to raise money for the NHS.
Hasbro has been asked for a response.
