Virgin Atlantic says a cabin crew member from Southampton who was killed in the Caribbean will be missed by all his friends and colleagues.

Quinton Garrathy, who was 38, was hit by a car in St Lucia early on Sunday (August 3).  He was crossing the road near the island's Rodney Bay Marina when he was knocked over by a Black Hyundai about 1.30am.

The dad-of-one had worked for Virgin for 15 years and was married with a baby daughter.

A Virgin Atlantic spokesman said:

“Virgin Atlantic can confirm crew member, Quinton Garrathy was involved in a fatal accident in St Lucia on Sunday 3rd August, 2014.
