Children at Watford General children’s ward were treated to a surprise visit today by boy band Rak-Su.

The group, who shot to fame after winning The X Factor in 2017, arrived laden with Christmas gifts and spent time talking to the children on the Starfish ward and the Safari day unit.

Parents and staff were also delighted to see band members Myles, Mustafa, Jamaal and Ashley from the Watford formed group.
