Funeral for Rickinghall man killed in Great Yarmouth tragedy

The funeral of a Rickinghall man killed in an industrial accident last month has taken place this afternoon.

Hundreds of mourners gathered at St Mary's Church, in Redgrave, to celebrate the life of Adam Taylor.

There was laughter and tears as friends and family recalled their favourite memories of the 28-year-old painting a picture of a fun-loving, caring and loyal person.

A selection of his favourite songs by bands including The Kooks and Maximo Park were also played on loud speakers.

Leading the service, the Rev Chris Norburn, called it a 'tragic time'.

'Life at times does seem unfair. It doesn't prepare us for times like these,' he said.

Mr Taylor lost his life alongside his workmates Peter Johnson, 42, known as PJ, and brothers Thomas, 26, and Daniel Hazelton, 30, all from Stanton, in Suffolk, at Claxton Engineering Services Ltd in Great Yarmouth on January 21.
