The community will have their chance to pay their respects to Scott Smith when his funeral is held today.

An open funeral will be held at Gorleston Crematorium at 10am, although attendees are asked to allow the family to enter the crematorium first.

No black is to be worn - just football shirts, as Mr Smith was an avid Manchester City supporter.

It will give people a chance to share their thoughts and memories of Mr Smith before a private wake is held afterwards for close friends and family.

Clare Strachan, chairman of the Friends of Fen Park, is also helping to organise a street collection in Lowestoft town centre tomorrow.

“For me, it is about keeping his legacy alive,” she said.
