A storm wrecked oak from the 1987 gales is transformed into a beautiful icon for Bury St Edmunds.

Designed and sculpted by Ben Loughrill the St Edmund wolf takes shape and now stands at the Southgate Green roundabout in the town as part of Bury in Bloom’s imaginative commissions for the town roundabouts.

The wolf guards St Edmund’s crown which sits atop some of the Abbey stonework as a stunning reminder of the saint and martyre’s importance.

Here Ed Joynson and Alex Scott, 18, former pupils of King Edward V1 School, have created a time lapse video of the creation of the wolf.
