A STUNNING steel scultpure of St Edmund has been unveiled this week and marks the first piece of public art in the town for the last 35 years.

The tall iconic figure was the brainchild of student Emmanuel O’Brien, 18, from Bury St Edmunds who won a competition organised by Bury in Bloom to create a design for one of the town’s roundabouts.

Standing proud on the Risbygate roundabout the figure captures at the moment of the saint’s martrydom and was unveiled by Mark Murphy from BBC Radio Suffolk on Tuesday.
