WHILE we all like a dance, there always has to be one that takes it to extremes.

Rajni Puthuppallymattathil, an intensive care nurse at Ealing Hospital, was among a group of staff who took part in the Onam Festival in Sudbury.

They performed a dance called Thiruvathira after spending months practising under the eye of fellow nurse Gifty Anoop in the hospital car park.

Rajni made the extraordinary costume herself.

Onam is an Indian festival celebrated around the globe by the Malayali, who come from southern Indian state of Kerela.
