The family of a man killed in a Norfolk supermarket earlier this week have revealed his organs have been donated to others.

26-year-old Nick Rogers died following a fight at the Morrisons store in Wymondham on Monday night.

Paying tribute to her son, his mum Sue Rogers said she hoped he would live on in the people he had saved.

Two men have been charged with murder and affray.

Words cannot describe the overwhelming gut wrenching sadness and anger we are all feeling at the loss of Nicholas. We had a strong bond and while Nick didn’t always get things right, he so desperately wanted to change his life for the better.

I hope that by donating your organs, the lives of others have been saved and you will live on with them. We hope they all lead a full life, something which was cruelly taken so suddenly from you. Night night, my beautiful special boy.

– Sue Rogers, Nick Rogers' mum
