Norwich railway station has received an unusual donation which might make commuting a more enjoyable experience.
A russet-coloured piano was donated by Ross Garden, who runs Hurn Chemist on Unthank Road.
Mr Garden offered the piano to the station after being inspired by similar projects in other railway stations such as St Pancras in London.
A sign attached to the piano invites anyone to 'tinkle the ivories', and several customers have already done so.
James Reeve, area customer service manager, said a group of singers from Blakeney were waiting to go home from the Royal Norfolk Show when they decided to play the piano and sing for their fellow passengers.

'Having someone play the piano can brighten someone's day, and we hope it makes our customers' journeys more enjoyable.'
