This weekend, we challenged you to help keep our beautiful county clean by taking part in Suffolk's Clean Sweep - and you did not disappoint with your amazing efforts.

The East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star teamed up with BBC Radio Suffolk to promote the clean-up, a week before Suffolk Day.

EADT and Star editor Brad Jones implored people to "show some community pride and get our county looking its very best".
