Hundreds of friends, patients and family members of a popular north Norfolk nurse killed in a tragic accident packed into Cromer's parish church on Saturday for her memorial service.

Louise Strong, pictured, who was a nurse practitioner at Paston Surgery in North Walsham, died after being hit be a car being driven by a friend at the end of January at her home near Cromer.

The 47-year-old, who had been awarded a masters degree from the University of East Anglia's school of nursing and midwifery only last July, was married with two children.

Saturday's service heard tributes from friend and Christian youth worker Nigel Taylor, senior partner at Mrs Strong's surgery Dr Richard Young and North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb.

The service at St Peter and St Paul's was taken by Cromer vicar, the Rev David Court.

Mrs Strong's funeral took place a week earlier at a private family service in the village of Great Saxham, near Bury St Edmunds, in Suffolk, where she and her husband were married.
