Tributes have been paid to a Hartford man who died after an accident involving a coach at Sutton.

Last Tuesday (December 16), Graham Shaw, 29, of Kestrel Close, was cycling towards Earith on the B1381, Chain Causeway, when the crash happened. He was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, where he later died.

It is believed Mr Shaw was due to marry next year.

Alan Pealling wrote on The Hunts Post website: “A crazy waste of a caring young man’s life leaving a devastated partner of many years, family and friends – a terrible thing to happen to such a caring considerate couple – words fail me.”

A spokesman for iForce, where Mr Shaw worked, added: “We were shocked to hear the news of Graham’s death and have expressed our deepest sympathy to his family.

“Graham had an exceptional intellect and possessed invaluable skills, which he was always happy to use to support not only his colleagues at Sutton, but at many other iForce sites as well.

“He was never one to shout about his achievements, which were considerable, but the business recognises what an enormous contribution he has made over the last two and a half years. He will be sorely missed.”
