Tributes have been paid following the death of a man who interpreted many of the pantomimes at Norwich's Theatre Royal for the deaf and hard of hearing.
British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter Jim Dunne died at the weekend.
A spokesman for Norwich Theatre Royal said: 'Jim was much-loved by our staff for his dedication and attention to detail as well as his wry and dry sense of humour.
'It was a privilege to have worked with him and we send our condolences to his family and friends.
'He had a long association with us signing many shows and was particularly known for his BSL interpretation of our pantomimes for many years.
