Tadley to mourn resident killed in Tunisia shootings

TADLEY will today pay its respects to the 80-year-old town resident who was killed in the Tunisia terror attack last Friday.

David Thompson, of The Green, was one of the 30 British victims of the shootings in Sousse.

His body was repatriated to the UK from Tunisia yesterday (Thurs).

St Paul's Church in Tadley, which is located in the same road in which Mr Thompson lived, will be holding a special service before joining in with the national minute's silence at midday.

A book of condolence has also been opened at the church for people to leave their messages and tributes.

Speaking to the Newbury Weekly News on Wednesday, Rev. Richard Harlow said: "They are in our thoughts and prayers, as are all the victims. Everyone here is shocked by the news and we want to respect the family's privacy so they can grieve together."

Earlier this week, friends and neighbours told the NWN that Mr Thompson was a "kind and genuinely nice man".
