A friend of the Bungay hit and run victim Shane Lay has paid tribute to a 'lovely bloke'.
Mr Lay, 42, of Broome, died on Saturday in Addenbrooke's Hospital a day after being found with serious injuries in Bridge Street, Bungay.
Emma Louise Brown, who lives in Bury St Edmunds said she was 'completely gutted and shocked' by the loss of her friend.
She said: 'I've known him since I was little and my brother and my friends are also in shock.
'He was always happy and cheery, he made me laugh when I wanted to cry.
