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.

  • Video report by ITV News's Anglia's Natalie Gray

For dogs around the country, a stroll to the pub has long been rewarded with only a dish of water to slurp and perhaps a dry biscuit.

But more and more eateries are now offering peckish pooches proper meals of their own.

The Dabbling Duck in Great Massingham near King's Lynn offers three course meals for mutts, and, if you order in advance, Christmas dinners as well.

So while you're tucking in, your dog can enjoy a meal too!
