A salon is celebrating after a successful fund raiser for a neo natal unit.

John Michael Hairdressing Salons in Market Row, Great Yarmouth raised £157 for the newborn baby unit at the James Paget Hospital.

Staff decided to hold a competition with customers after their colleague, Amy Frost, fell pregnant.

They held a guess the weight and sex of the baby sweepstake at £1 a go.

Catherine Hough, 77, of Frank Stone Court, Great Yarmouth, correctly guessed the weight and sex of baby Olivia, who weighed seven pounds four ounces.
