A five-year-old girl has donated over 12 inches of her hair to help children going through treatment for cancer.
Ruby-Ellen Fox was inspired to cut off her long locks after seeing a story online about a young girl who lost her hair while battling the disease.
And on Tuesday, the Albert Pye Primary School pupil had her hair cut at Number 46 Hair Consultants in Beccles to donate to the Little Princess Trust.
She has also raised £550 to send to the charity, which provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.
Her mum Toni Shaw said: 'She was so brave and brilliant, I cried! She's been like a celebrity at her school.'
