Video: Sausage rolls, a parrot and balloons – all part of the Boston Standard relaunch

The first day of the big Boston Standard relaunch is now complete.

Staff from the newspaper have spent the day manning a stall on Boston market and hundreds of people have been to see us to chat about the paper’s new look and enjoy the free gifts on offer.

The Standard team was joined by Colin Martin and Percy the parrot.
