And now a new memorial has been created in memory of Denver Clinton who died aged four following a battle with cancer.

A bench and plaque on Mattishall village green, where he and his mum used to spend time together, was dedicated to him in a special ceremony on Friday, May 17.

It was arranged by Mattishall parish councillor Jan Smith, who said: "I had known Denver since he was a baby and as a parish, we thought we should do something in his memory.

"The way he fought was a real story of courage. In my dedication I said that with this plaque, his memory will now stay alive with us forever."
