Two Ipswich parks have been included in a list of the nation's favourite parks.

The list, put together by Fields in Trust, includes all the nominees for the UK's most popular park and Suffolk is well represented.

In Ipswich, Christchurch Park and Holywells Park have been named on the shortlist.

Christchurch Park was praised for being a "well looked after space" that can be used by a variety of visitors including dog walkers, tennis players, runners and children's playground users.

Holywells Park was recognised as being a "diverse woodland" with "numerous ponds with flowing water" as well as having a small museum and quaint tearoom.

Also in Suffolk, King George's Field in Haughley is among the nominees.
