Family tribute to Hethersett father killed in car crash

The family of a Hethersett man, who died in a car crash, said they feel shocked after the sudden loss of their 'loving' son and 'caring' brother.

Father-of-three Trevor Bunn was the front seat passenger in a blue Volvo 850 which was involved in a collision with a silver Peugeot 206 on the B1172 Norwich Road on Saturday at about 11.10pm.

The accident also claimed the life of the driver and fellow Hethersett resident Sara Page, 29.

The rear seat passenger Ollie Wood suffered serious injuries, while the female driver of the Peugeot suffered slight injuries.

Mr Bunn's mother, Belinda Bunn, said: 'He was just a lovely boy. He was well-known and is going to be missed by a lot of people in the village.'

The 30-year-old, who lived at Muriel Kenny Court, grew-up in Hethersett and attended the village's junior school and high school.

He lived in Hethersett his whole life expect for a brief time at the Harts Farm estate in Wymondham. At the time of his death he had been unemployed but had aspirations of becoming a chef or a brick layer.
