Classic cars went on show in memory of a man who had a passion for them. 

More than £860 was raised for Alzheimer’s Society and Cancer Research UK during the event at Bears grill in Lenwade, which paid tribute to Mike Key, of Hethersett, who died in February, aged 74.

Mr Key was a well-known photographer who had articles and photographs published in many motoring magazines, and he wrote several books about custom cars.

The event started with a slow cruise along Broadland Northway led by Mr Key's wife, June, in one of his Hot Rod 1932 Fords.

June said: "Mike was my loving husband, loving father of Rachel and Matthew. He was my rock and my best friend.
