Mr Watson was a front seat passenger in the VW van and was taken to hospital but died a short time later from his injuries.

The Mercedes and the VW caught fire after the crash.

A tribute from his family, released by Norfolk Constabulary today, said: "He was a much loved husband to Tanya, father to his children Sherreeann, Nigel, Ricky, Travis Cameron and Chantelle and grandfather to Riley, Makayla, Archie and Theo whom he adored and were his world, as well as a much loved brother, and son in law.

"Jon lived for today, was full of fun and will be greatly missed by all his family and friends. His passing has left an enormous black hole in all their lives.

"We will always be grateful to have had Jon in our lives who was caring, fun, loyal and loving to all."
