The life of a 15-year-old student killed in a road accident will be celebrated today at a memorial football match at Oriel Specialist Mathematics and Computing College in Gorleston.

Sports-mad Emily Knipe, who played football and rugby and dreamed of competing at the Olympics, died in hospital last month after a van in which she was a passenger struck a tree in Beccles Road, Fritton, near Yarmouth.

Kicking off at 4pm, the match will see Oriel's year 11 - in which Emily was a student - take on Swindell Football Club.
