Friends and family of a popular man tragically killed in a road accident have raised money for a bench in his memory.

Daniel Casteleiro died on August 23, 2014 when his silver Renault Clio left the road and ended up on its roof at Parkhill in Oulton.

To commemorate his life, friends and relatives organised a charity beard shave earlier this year which raised £1,580.85.

A bench has now been installed at Nicholas Everitt Park, Oulton Broad.

Daniel's aunt, Maria Barwick, said Mr Casteleiro is 'dearly loved and missed every day'.

Cousin Jayson Bond added: 'For me I would rather visit the bench than go to a church or the crash site as they are quite difficult places to visit.

'It's much nicer to sit here and remember good things as the park is less daunting and brings back memories of when Daniel and I would come here when we were younger.'
