The family of a 20-year-old boy who died after a car crash near Norwich last year, have issued a tribute.

Daniel Leathers died on Saturday, December 3, after a car crash in Blofield on December 1, 2022.

His family said: “Dan was an amazing son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and most of all a friend. All he wanted in life was to help others, make people laugh and he simply loved life!

"Dan was in the final year of his engineering apprenticeship and loved to go beating, being happiest when running through a field covered in mud.

"This last year he had lived his best life, watching his beloved Leeds United play football, spending time with his family, clubbing, meeting up with friends for a drink, attending festivals and just having fun.

"Dan was an organ donor and it brings us great comfort to know that he was able to help so many people.

"We will miss his laughter, his sense of humour and his love every day but will be forever grateful for the amazing son and brother we were blessed to call ours.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank the emergency services who attended, all who helped at the scene - the N&N, Critical Care Patient Transfer Team, Transplant Coordinators and Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

"Their care and compassion will never be forgotten.”

The collision happened at the junction with Yarmouth Road at Blofield on Thursday, December 1, at about 4.40pm.

Mr Leathers was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge following the crash.

A grey Vauxhall Corsa was travelling eastbound towards Great Yarmouth and was attempting to turn right towards Blofield.

A second vehicle, a grey Range Rover Evoque, was heading westbound towards Norwich along the 50mph zone, just as the road widens from one lane to two.

The driver of the Land Rover sustained minor injuries.

Three fire engines, at least five police cars and several ambulances dealt with the incident.
