    The Reverend Canon Stephen Wright says people would like to hold a special service for him, but it's up to his family if it goes ahead.

    "People are shaken. There is so much unknown at the moment," he said.

    "We don't want to intrude on their grief, but if there is anything we can do to help, we will help."

    More residents of Attleborough are being urged to give their views on major improvements in the town centre.

    Barely 100 people so far have made their voices heard on the £4.5m proposals.

    Councillors say only 95 responses have been received so far.

    They want to be sure the plans are fine-tuned to meet everyone's needs.

    The deadline for responses to the county council is midnight on Sunday.
