It’s with the greatest sadness that on Tuesday 17th July, at 4pm, Laura and our unborn daughter Maisie died in an accident. It was a huge loss for me and the whole family and they will be missed by everyone.

I've lost my best friend, my soulmate, my one true love and the mother of our beautiful daughter. Laura was nearly six months pregnant and was very excited to be a mum.

I know you’re both in heaven now smiling down on us all and my love will always be with you both.

I miss you and love you both so much and will hold you in my heart forever.
