A community has come together in memory of a popular parking inspector.
Gillian Bray, of Gilly B's catering unit in Wymondham, arranged and helped pay for a memorial bench to be made for Colin Burrows, a parking inspector from Hales who died of a heart attack aged 53 on January 9, 2018.
She said: 'Colin used to come every day for his cup of tea. A lot of our customers are in shock. He was just a decent man.'
A ribbon was cut on May 25 at the bench, which is next to Gilly B's on Ayton Road by Michele Earp, a colleague and friend of Mr Burrows.
Mr Burrows' father Derek Burrows, 85, who contributed £100 to the bench, said: 'He was loved by everyone that met him. What's happened today is amazing, he would have liked this.'
