Vicar speaks of his sadness at couple's death

The vicar who conducted the wedding service for a couple who died from gunshot wounds at the weekend, has spoken of his sadness over the tragedy. The Rev David Court married Keith and Andrea Johnson in Cromer church in 2004. On Sunday they were found dead outside their home in the town.

The feeling in Cromer is one of total shock and disbelief. I remember their wedding day as an incredibly happy day. They'd both been divorced before and weren't sure they could be married in the church, but they were really delighted. It was a day of great celebration."

– The Rev David Court

Keith Johnson was a former Mayor of Cromer and was the current leader of North Norfolk District Council. He and his wife regularly attended civic events in the area. Mr Court has set up a special area in his church where people can light candles in memory of the dead couple.
