The funeral of Norwich City fan, David Powell, from Attleborough, will take place today with loved ones in the club's colours to commemorate his dedication to the club.

The 49-year-old died in a crash on the Northern Distributor Road at Horsham St Faith near the A140 slip road towards Hellesdon on August 14.

Mr Powell had been a Canaries' supporter for many years and special tributes to him were paid at Norwich's match against Chelsea on August 24, with a minute's applause on 49 minutes to reflect his age.

The club also paid its own tribute during the 49th minute displaying an image of Mr Powell along with a message which read "David Powell, 1970-2019" and a tribute included in the match programme.
