A nine-year-old boy has been recognised for his creativity in a national Christmas card competition by the National Autistic Society(NAS).

Toby Ellis, from Beccles, has been awarded for his design in the nationwide competition.

She said: 'He designed the card at school last Christmas for an enterprise exercise where the children designed and hand-painted water colour snowmen pictures.
