Tracy Snowden took on the challenge in memory of Conor Manly, from Mattishall, near Dereham, who was part of her extended family, and was just 18 when he took his own life.

Conor's sister Courteney Manly and her friend Vonnie Penvenne, both 18, also took part alongside Colin Jeckell, Paul Furness, and Kimberley Warnes.

Mrs Snowden, from Felmingham, said: "We had a fantastic day, although some of us enjoyed the jump more than others. It wasn't how I'd imagined it to be. "I was feeling very sick when the parachute opened so have vowed, never again. It was emotional too. Courteney did her brother Conor proud."

It took place at UK Parachuting, Beccles airfield.
