Heartbeat East Suffolk has announced that the final of its Cow Pat competition at Lane Farm, Swilland, has been postponed for the time being.

The competition involved participants staking a guess of where the next cow pat will 'land'.

Len Tate, vice president of the charity, said when the competition can be completed, a list of winners will be published.

He said: “We would like to thank all those who have supported the competition, especially the public in Woodbridge, Ipswich and Martlesham and as a result it has raised £787.66. This fund will be held and used in our work on supporting cardiac patients and Ipswich Hospital once the event has been completed.”
