ADVICE is on-hand for Suffolk's young people today, as they receive their A-level results and plan their future careers.

Graham Newman, Suffolk County Council's portfolio holder for children, schools and young people, said the council was keen to help teenagers as much as it could.

He said: “There is a whole raft of things going on to help people with job opportunities and experience.

“I am obviously hoping everyone does as well as they expected and people do not get any nasty surprises.

“There are points across Suffolk to give people a greater variety of information and advice. There is a lot of different advice to be had.”

The county's Connexions service has an office Ipswich which can help people with a range of issues.
