It's just a sad and tragic reminder that death can find us in even the most unexpected ways. May he rest in peace.  Sad

Just saw this on Sky News. From the BHX website:

"It is with the deepest regret that Birmingham International Airport advises you that Richard died this morning in a car accident on his way to work.

Richard was a wonderful person, who brought us strong leadership with a human touch.

Our immediate thoughts are with Richard’s family, at this sad and difficult time."

------------------
RIP Richard.

Pkbhx, welcome to A.net, sorry your first post had to be on this sad subject.
