A 24-year-old left devastated by her boyfriend’s death from epilepsy five years ago is doing a fire walk in his memory.

Oliver Scott-Greenard, from Ormesby was just 19 when he died following an epileptic seizure in 2011.

His girlfriend of two years, Alex Gough, along with friends and family of the teenager, set up a fund in his memory which has now raised more than £30,000 for Epilepsy Action.

To mark the fifth anniversary of his death, Miss Gough has arranged to walk on fire to raise even more money for the charity which provides support and advice to epilepsy sufferers.

Miss Gough, an HR officer at Wymondham College, said: “I like doing crazy challenges and trying to drag in as many people as possible to do it with me. Epilepsy Action are one of the leading epilepsy charities in the country and they do a lot.”

The walk is due to be held on December 3 in Norwich.
