Suffolk science festival could become an annual event

Hundreds of budding scientists have been in Bury St Edmunds this weekend as part of Suffolk's first science festival.

From making your own racing car and robots, to a pop-up planetarium, the show's organisers want to inspire more children to take up science later in life.

They hope it will help to fill a big skills gap in the STEM subjects - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - across both Norfolk and Suffolk.

What makes an 'outstanding' hospital?

The chief executive of a hospital named as one of the best in the country has praised his hard-working staff.

West Suffolk hospital in Bury St Edmunds is one of just seven general hospitals to be judged 'Outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission.

Chief Executive Stephen Dunn said: "It's down to our hard-working staff.

"I think we really value our staff, they do go the extra mile but they need to be supported to do the right thing and that's the ethos and the culture that we try to create here at West Suffolk."
