A community has paid tribute to a 25-year-old father who was found dead in an overturned car on the A47.
Luke Boorman, from Tolye Road, in Norwich, was discovered inside a silver Mercedes at about 9am in the morning of Friday, January 17 at the dual carriageway's junction with the B1108.
Mr Boorman, a chef, had been reported missing after being last seen on a night out at the Parson Woodforde restaurant, in Weston Longville, at about 10.30pm on Tuesday, January 14.
Now, Wymondham Rugby Club, in Reeve Way, where Mr Boorman worked, has paid tribute to him and launched a fundraiser to support his family.
He worked in the club's Red Lion Bistro preparing food for both players and guests.
Club chairman Andrew Kilby said: "We pride ourselves in rugby on being a family and Luke was very much part of that family here at Wymondham. A tremendous and talented colleague and a very fine young man.
