An expert from the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) will be speaking at the next meeting of the Redbridge tinnitus support group to help those who are suffering in silence.

Colette Bunker, BTA volunteer and support group manager, said: "Tinnitus can be an isolating condition, and we're keen to spread the word that there are management techniques which can help a person lead the best life they can, and to reduce the burden of living with this condition."

The meeting will take place on Monday, February 24 at 2pm at Redbridge Sensory Services in Woodford Green.
