World Book Day 2021: How are Suffolk students spending the day?




Today is World Book Day, and that means only one thing - a chance to dress up as your favourite character.

In a year when many are studying from home, students have still taken the chance to enjoy themselves.

And parents, grandparents and guardians have sent in their photos to Suffolk News.
