A man who says he has turned his life around is spreading a message of positivity by donating Easter eggs to a children’s ward.

Martyn Wadsley took eggs to sick children at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.

“I have lost 50lb through Slimming World at Upwell so they are no good to me,” said Mr Wadsley who has dropped from 25 stone to 21 stone in six months.

“It is all part of a new life mission I seem to be on. After divorcing I decided to make big changes including stopping drinking for 12 weeks from October. I am turning my life around 180 degrees.

“This time last year I suffered with a heavy bout of depression which is a wicked illness, Winston Churchill called it the black dog.
