Nyall Brown, from Cromer, died on May 22, 2018.

An inquest heard how the "funny" and "mischievous" Mr Brown had struggled with his mental health for a number of months.

A 90-minute memorial football match in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance and mental health charity Mind is happening at 1pm on Saturday, September 7, at Cromer's Cabbell Park.
