An 85-year-old man has put together an NHS-themed flashing lights display to show support for key workers during the coronavirus outbreak.
Colin Bulley, who lives on Elm Close in Downham Market, put up the lights on Saturday, April 4 to show his appreciation for the NHS and its vital workers.
The 85-year-old put together four different types of flashing lights in the shape of a heart and spelt out NHS to thank them for their work.
Mr Bulley said: “It took me a day and a half to install. I read about a suggestion to put Christmas lights to cheer people up and thought it was a lovely idea.
“I thought the more that go up the better, the NHS is the one we’re all so grateful for and I wanted to show that.
