TWO new sculptures are taking pride of place in the children's A&E department at the QE2 Hospital.
They were donated by Hatfield artist Ian De'Silva, to say thanks to the staff there who cared for his son.
Eleven-year-old Howard was admitted to the WGC hospital earlier this year for a hernia operation.
And Ian, 51, of Drovers Way, said he was so impressed with the standard of care on display he was determined to do something to show his gratitude.
