Funeral held for Hethersett crash victim

Family and friends gathered at Hethersett parish church to say their final farewells to a local man who died in a car crash.

Mourners congregated at St Remigius Church this afternoon for the funeral of father-of-three Trevor Bunn who was killed in a collision at the village near Norwich earlier this month.

The 30-year-old was the front seat passenger of a blue Volvo 850, which was in a collision with a Peugeot 206 on the B1172 Norwich Road at Hethersett on June 11.

The driver of the Volvo, 29-year-old Sara Page, also died in the crash.

Mr Bunn, who was unemployed, had been a successful cycle speedway rider and played football for Wymondham and Hethersett as a teenager.

His mother, Belinda, previously told the Evening News: 'He was just a lovely boy. He was well-known and is going to be missed by a lot of people in the village.'

Mr Bunn, who lived in Muriel Kenny Court, grew up in Hethersett and attended the village's junior school and high school. He lived in Hethersett his whole life except for a brief time at the Harts Farm estate in Wymondham. He had plans to become a chef or bricklayer.
