Staff and students at One sixth form in Ipswich paid special tribute to a former photography tutor who died last year at a special awards ceremony.

Paying tribute, principal Alan Whittaker said: “It was an honour and a privilege to present this award.

“Gordon spent over 40 years educating people across the world.

“He was an amazing man who gave his whole life to teaching. He was a true inspiration to students, his colleagues and his family.

“He truly was a wonderful person to work with and a trusted friend to all.”
