A young woman has been inspired to set up her own online business selling wax melts and carpet freshener.

Holly Ridgeon, 26, from Lowestoft, originally wanted to start the business in 2020 but was discouraged from doing so because of the pandemic.

But after three weeks setting up Littleprettywax from her kitchen, the business is already going from strength to strength.

She said: "I've always had a love for wax melts and have always wanted to start up my own business so I thought why not.

"The reception so far from the local community has been really positive.

"In my first week I received 17 orders and this week I have received 9.
