The family of two brothers from Norwich who were killed in a crash on the A140 have today paid tribute to them.

Shane and Sam Nobbs, who were 23 and 20 respectively, had been travelling in a black Honda Civic along the A140 when the car was involved in a crash with a red LDV Maxus at about 8am on Saturday.

The brothers both died at the scene of the crash.

The driver of the LDV van was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where he remains in a 'critical but stable condition'.

The brothers' mother Lisa Nobbs described them as 'fun loving'.

She said: 'They lived life to the max. They always looked after me and put a smile on my face. My fridge will always be full now because they won't be here to eat my chocolate.

'I will miss waking up in the morning and my sons asking me for a coffee and a fag. They will always be in my heart, my two little rays of sunshine. Sleep tight babies, lots of love always and forever, mum.'
