National Poetry Day: Suffolk phrase 'on the huh' celebrated

The Suffolk phrase "on the huh", meaning a bit wonky, is getting national recognition as part of a series of BBC commissions for National Poetry Day 2017.

Written by Cambridge-based poet Rebecca Watts, who grew up in Suffolk, the term will also be considered for entry into future editions of the Oxford English Dictionary.

It is one of 12 new regional poems from across England.
