The family of a 19-year-old who died playing football have made a fresh appeal to help with funeral costs.

Ryan Medhurst was playing at Great Yarmouth College when he collapsed on the pitch and died on Monday, February 29.

A funding page has been set up to help towards the cost of his funeral and so far around £700 has been raised.

His sister, Leanne Hawkins, 25, said that costs of the funeral are expected to be around £2,500.

The death has been reported to the Norfolk coroner's office and a date has not yet been set for an inquest.
