Silence For Shoreham Air Show Victims

22 August 2016, 13:54

A minute's silence has been held to remember 11 men who died in the Shoreham airshow disaster.

Hundred's of people, including family and friends of the victims,  joined in a service at the Adur Ferry toll bridge and other sites across West Sussex to mark exactly a year since a vintage Hawker Hunter jet crashed into queuing traffic on the A27. 

The Rev Canon Ann Waizeneker read the names of the men ahead of the silence at 13:22 BST. 

Balloons and doves were released on the bridge and flags flew at half-mast at civic centres across West Sussex. 

Shoreham's Brighton City Airport, which staged the air show, also fell silent for one hour as a mark of respect.

Worthing United FC held a minute's applause for team mates Jacob Schilt and Matthew Grimstone who were on their way to a game when they died.

The men who died were: wedding chauffeur Maurice Abrahams, 76, from Brighton; retired engineer James Graham Mallinson, 72, from Newick, near Lewes; window cleaner and general builder Mark Trussler, 54, from Worthing; cycling friends Dylan Archer, 42, from Brighton, and Richard Smith, 26, from Hove; NHS manager Tony Brightwell, 53, from Hove; grandfather Mark Reeves, 53, from Seaford; Worthing United footballers Matthew Grimstone and Jacob Schilt, both 23; personal trainer Matt Jones, 24; and Daniele Polito, 23, from Worthing.
