PAUL HOOKER: A mass of floral tributes to local man who died in crash

Monday 26th October 2020


THIS is the huge spread of floral tributes left at the graveside of Paul Hooker who died in a road accident last month.

Hundreds of bouquets and personalised wreaths were laid during his funeral service in Leeds last Friday.

He was buried in the grounds of  St Nicholas Church with hundreds of people forced to stand outside.

The dozens of cars, trucks and vans used to transport the mourners parked on the tiny but busy B2163  causing major headaches for motorists.
Mr Hooker was travelling in a white Mercedes GL350 when it overturned in Pitt Road, between Langley and Kingswood, at around 11.25pm on September 21.
Police were largely absent for the event until locals alerted the force to the chaos.
