Villagers are celebrating after building work started on a £45,000 layby.

Great Yeldham Parish Council and district councillor Iona Parker successfully applied for the layby in the village’s High Street.

Mrs Parker said: "I am delighted we have managed to secure funding for this scheme.

“The layby will provide parking for the reading room and the post office on the busy A1017 and I am very pleased we have managed to provide a safe place to park in the centre of the village."
