Vibrant murals painted by patients have brightened up a mental health ward – adding a splash of colour to once-blank walls.
People being treated at Wedgwood House in Bury St Edmunds got creative and produced four paintings for the Southgate and Northgate wards.
One of the murals featured a timeline showing Hardwick Heath's history over the past 1,100 years, another depicted a mountain range, while a third captured a Caribbean beach scene.
Matron Natalie Bailey, of the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT), said: "The murals really provided a fantastic spark of colour.
"It has given service users the chance to express their creativity."

Director Stephanie Hartick added: "It was fantastic to see the enthusiasm and stimulation the project has created."
