A vigil to mark the life of a homeless man who died on the streets in Norwich will be held tomorrow at the site of his death.
Police were called to the St Stephen's underpass at 7am on Wednesday to reports a man had collapsed, but when they arrived he was already dead.
Named locally as Sergio, it is thought the man was in his early 30s, and regularly moved between Norwich and Dereham.
Floral tributes have been left in the underpass, and one message read: 'A dear friend, you will be sadly missed forever.'
A spokesman for group Class Unity Class Pride, which has organised the vigil, said: 'We remember another life lost, a homeless brother.'
He added: 'We come to the vigil out of respect for a human life lost in our city, a loss which could easily have been prevented. It is on our city's conscience.
'We attend in love and solidarity with his family and all those who loved him and remain his friends on the streets. Rest in peace brother.'
