A well-known Fakenham businessman was found dead at home early yesterday.

Chris Mundy, who had business interests in Fakenham's Courtesy Cabs taxi firm, was found at his home in the village of Great Ryburgh.

Police and emergency services were called at about 7.50am.

A Norfolk police spokesman said there were no suspicious circumstances, the coroner was being informed and an inquest would be held.

It is understood Mr Mundy, in his early 50s, came to Fakenham from the Swindon area.

At one time he and his former wife, Mary, were involved in running the Coffee Pot café on Bridge Street, close to the taxi base.

They had two children - an elder son, Brendan, and a teenage daughter, Harriet.

Louis Brown, of Fakenham, who worked for Mr Mundy for more than five years, described his former boss as a "generous and kind man who thought the world of his children".

He said that in his younger days Mr Mundy was a talented footballer.
