Floral tributes have been left at the scene of a crash in which a man in his 20s died.
The crash happened at around 2.20am in the early hours of Friday (January 15) morning, when a blue Audi went into a wall on the A148 at Hillington.
Fire crews from King's Lynn North and Sandringham were called to the major road at around 2.30am to assist police and the ambulance service.
Three passengers - two men and a woman - sustained minor injuries, but the driver was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
At 10am on Friday, the damaged Audi sat in the middle of the 30mph stretch, with a recovery vehicle on site ready for when emergency crews finished their work.
The road remained closed until around lunchtime to allow police to complete their investigations.
By Sunday afternoon, several bouquets of flowers and messages paying tribute to the driver had been left attached to a fence which has temporarily replaced part of the crumbled wall.
One card remembered a keen fisherman who was "not just a mate", but a "brother".
