Instead of asking guests to bring presents when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married at Windsor they've chosen seven charities for people to donate to.

One of those selected was the charity Scotty's Little Soldiers based in King's Lynn in Norfolk.

It was founded by war widow Nikki Scott after her husband and father to her two children, Corporal Lee Scott, was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

Since then the charity's helped hundreds of families in similar circumstances.

The family of a man killed in a crash on the A47 at King's Lynn have paid an emotional tribute to him.

Riki Boughen was one of two men who died on January 17 in a collision involving a coach and a van near to the Hardwick roundabout in west Norfolk.

His family said that the 43-year-old was a "much loved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and grandson who was very popular and loved by many."

"Every room he walked into he lit up. With his cheeky character he was full of jokes, always smiling, laughing and loved his food."

"He was a qualified electrician, although he decided he loved his job as a digger driver much more and did that for many years.

"He made friends everywhere he went and would often cook Sunday dinners for people and pass them out of the window or invite people in that had no money or food to eat to make sure everyone had a Sunday lunch.

"He would give anyone anything he had to give. He had the biggest heart.”

The crash also saw a number of passengers on board the coach taken to hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Anyone who saw what happened should contact the serious collision investigation team at Wymondham on 101.
