Body of Tadley man killed in Tunisia shootings being repatriated today

THE body of an 80-year-old Tadley man killed in the terrorist attack in Tunisia last week is being repatriated today (Thurs).

The Foreign Office has confirmed that David Thompson and eight other British victims of the shootings will be flown back to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire at around 3pm.

Mr Thompson, of The Green, has been described by friends and neighbours to the Newbury Weekly News as "kind" and "a genuinely nice man".

A minute's silence will be held throughout the country at midday tomorrow (Friday) to remember the 30 confirmed British people who lost their lives in Sousse.

St Paul's Church in Tadley, which is located in the same road where Mr Thompson lived with his partner, will be joining in with the minute's silence.
