People have been invited to line the streets to pay their respects to a young woman who took her own life, on her final journey through her home town.

Marina Watters, 26, was found dead at her home in Dereham last month. 

Her best friend, Cherise Barnard, and brother, Michael Watters, have invited people to line the streets as Ms Watters' funeral procession passes through the town centre at about 2.10pm on Friday, May 19.

They said Ms Watters' family wanted to thank everyone who has supported them and contributed to a fundraiser on, which raised more than £7,000 to help give her a fitting send-off.
