All creatures great and small will descend on a north Suffolk church as a pet service makes a welcome return.

The thanksgiving service for animals and their owners will take centre stage at the parish church of St Mary in Somerleyton this Sunday.

The pet service takes place at 3pm at St Mary's Church in Blundeston Road, Somerleyton, near Lowestoft on June 2.

People are being encouraged to "come with, or without pets" for this church service with a difference - with refreshments for all provided afterwards.
