A convoy of supercars delivered more than 100 gifts to the Gorleston-based James Paget Hospital's children's ward on Sunday.

Organised by Lowestoft-based tyre fitters Treadz and Waltons Garage, the convoy included Lamborghinis and Maseratis, among others.

Ian Thompson, Treadz director, said: "A lot of people came together and we headed over to the hospital in convoy.

"The hospital had arranged a space for us to park just outside the ward so the children could come out and they loved the cars.
