Mass skydive remembers four men from Watton

The friends and family of four men who died in the same Norfolk town have remembered them with a mass skydive.

Jimmy Lain, 31, and close friend Nick Thomas, 27, both of Watton, took their own lives in April and June this year.

Their deaths followed those in Watton of Nick Dobson, 26, in 2003 and 31-year-old Paul Outlaw in 2011, who also took their own lives.

James North, who was friends with Mr Lain and Mr Thomas, and Mr Lain's widow, Suzanne, were among the 40 people who took part in the 14,000ft jump in aid of charity.

Rachel Clare of the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) said their efforts would save lives.
