Paul Geater thought he had missed his chance to photograph a rainbow over Ipswich, which disappeared just as he was getting out his phone.

But he said: “Five minutes later another rainbow appeared, and I was in time to take a photo of that one.”

Rainbows are currently very much in the public mind, with a Rainbow trail appearing in windows around Suffolk as families aim to spread inspiring messages while staying at home. Ipswich mum Crystal Stanley set up the Rainbow Trail facebook group, which has thousands of members around the world.
