Flowers left outside Norwich Apple Store in memory of Steve Jobs

Staff at the Apple Store in Chapelfield Shopping Centre in Norwich have been given a nice surprise on a sad day today, as flowers were left outside the store following the death of Apple's founder, Steve Jobs.

The news of one of the world's must influential businessmen and innovators finally succumbing to his battle with cancer at the age of 56 has been one of the biggest stories worldwide today.

And some people in Norwich have even been compelled to pay their respects to the man who brought the world technology such as the iPod and iPhone.

Store leader at the Norwich store, Lindsay Cruickshank, said: 'We've had bunches of flowers left and many conversations in-store, but we are not surprised by that at all.'

An official statement from Apple, which has been joined by tributes from big names such as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and US president Barack Obama, reads: 'Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius and the world has lost an amazing human being.
