The family of a 31-year-old cyclist who was killed in a crash have paid tribute to a 'kind-hearted' young man.

Ian Mooney, from Norwich, died in hospital after a crash on Aylsham Road at about 4pm on Tuesday, April 3.

He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital after the incident, which involved a black Audi Q7 and happened near the turning to Glenmore Gardens.

His family have since paid tribute to him. They said: 'Ian was a kind hearted, cheeky young man, who was lost too soon and will be sadly missed by his friends and family.

'He was a former pupil of Hellesdon High, grew up and lived in the city.

'We would like to thank the emergency services and the wonderful staff at Addenbrooke's Hospital for their efforts in trying to save Ian's life.
