Titan sub implosion: University friends pay tribute to ‘generous and kind person’ | World News

The university friends of the 19-year-old who was killed in the Titan sub implosion have paid tribute to the “incredibly generous and kind person”.

The four friends of Suleman Dawood, who attended Strathclyde University with him and only wanted to give their first names, described him as a supportive and empathetic friend.

Isaac said: “Suleman was not only an incredibly generous and kind person in the conventional sense, he also had a remarkable capacity for giving his time and empathy.

“Suleman embodied everything of a true friendship, he always displayed genuine concern for me and my friends, and was always there to give support.

“His presence in my life was a comforting reminder that someone truly cared for me and would be there with me through anything.

“The world has lost such a wonderful person and my love goes out to the Dawood family.”

Meanwhile, Calum said he has “not met anyone else like Suleman”.

“Coming to university was an incredibly daunting and scary part of my life but Suleman, who was one of the first people I met, instantly made me feel welcomed and safe.

“He always found time to listen to you no matter how small it was and offer his thoughts, and was always putting others in front of himself.

“He loved making memories with his friends, whether that be going for a meal, watching a film, or as simple as spending time with him.

“Anyone who knew him knew how much of a generous and down-to-earth person he was, who spoke often and highly of how much he loved and [how] proud he was of his family.

“Even writing this it is unthinkable to know that we have lost such an amazing friend.”

Another friend Joe was critical of online comments making assumptions about Suleman – the son of prominent Pakistani billionaire Shahzada Dawood who was also killed in the implosion.

“He was the most helpful person I have ever met and not just with helping with everyday problems.

“He was incredibly kind and respectful and had great affection for his parents and his sister, which he always spoke very highly of.

“Anyone who knew him, even if it was for a short period of time knows how much of a loss this is for the world.”

Meanwhile, Cody said Suleman was “a good person who cared intently about someone he hadn’t even met” after Suleman approached the homesick student and offered him a sandwich.

Gareth Richards death: Frank Skinner pays tribute to ‘kind, gentle, funny, fascinating’ former radio co-host | UK News

Frank Skinner has paid tribute to comedian Gareth Richards as he introduced a special edition of a podcast featuring the best bits of the radio show they co-hosted.

Richards’ death was announced yesterday almost two weeks after he suffered brain injuries in a motorway crash.

Describing Richards as a “former colleague and dear friend”, Skinner said: “There’s been lots of beautiful messages about Gareth and his family have been very kind to us and kept us informed about the details of his struggle but look, Gareth didn’t make it.

“Gareth didn’t make it and we will miss him intensely.

“He was a very kind, gentle, funny, fascinating man and I can’t believe that he…

“Today’s show features Gareth’s best bits but you are allowed to cry but you have to laugh as well, I think he would have insisted on that.”

Skinner and Richards worked together during the early days of the Saturday morning show on Absolute Radio.

In a post on social media paying tribute, Richards’ wife said: “He was in a terrible car accident on Monday 27 March at 11.30pm and sustained serious brain injuries.

“It was a miracle that he arrived at the hospital alive.

“Since then, the doctors and nurses have been incredible and have kept him in a stable and sedated condition.

“However, the latest scan revealed that the extent of the damage was so severe that they would have to remove all of the supportive medications and allow him to be at peace.”

‘We will miss him greatly’

The comedian had his first ever gig in October 2004, aboard the Wibbly Wobbly Boat, a venue compered by alternative comedy veteran Malcolm Hardy.

His success led to him becoming a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2007 competition, and a runner-up in the Amused Moose Laugh-Off 2007.

In 2010 the comedian went on to lead his first solo stand-up on “Stand Up Between Songs” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Richards was also nominated for Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer.

During his career, Richards also appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, Live at the Electric on BBC Three and children’s TV panel show The Dog Ate My Homework on CBBC.

He later joined Skinner’s award-winning radio show for two years.

Tributes poured in from heartbroken fans, friends and family, following the announcement of his death.

On Saturday The Frank Skinner Show tweeted: “We are heartbroken about the loss of our dear friend, Gareth. We will miss him greatly.”

Emily Dean, a co-host of Skinner’s podcast, said: “God I will miss you Gareth Richards – my hilarious, unfailingly kind, gentle, beautiful friend. So grateful to have known you.”

Skinner struggled for words as he told listeners how Richards was fighting for his life after a “very big road accident” last weekend.

‘I’m absolutely gutted’

Fellow comic Joe Lycett posted: “When I did my first hour at the Edinburgh Festival, I shared my venue with Gareth Richards.

“He was on after me and was normally the first person I saw when I came off stage. He wasn’t having the best time of it that year but he was always generous and comforting despite presumably trying to focus on his own imminent show.

“We giggled together on and off over the last decade and reconnected more actively in the last couple of years, and I felt like he was getting to a happy and more honest place with who he was.

“He’d been very brave. I’m absolutely gutted about his death and am so sad for his family.

“His last WhatsApp message to me contains amongst other things, the words ‘love you’. I didn’t say it back then and I should have: love you too, G. X”

Cody Fisher: Police issue appeal over fatal stabbing of footballer in Birmingham nightclub as friend says ‘I love you forever’ in tribute | UK News

Police have issued a fresh appeal for information about the alleged murder of footballer Cody Fisher as a friend paid tribute to him, begging for him to come home.

Mr Fisher, 23, was stabbed on the dancefloor of the Crane nightclub in the Digbeth area of Birmingham just before 11.45pm on Boxing Day.

Despite efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead around half an hour later. A murder investigation has been launched.

One of his friends, Jess Chatwin, paid tribute to the footballer on Twitter, in a tweet that is no longer public.

She wrote: “You didn’t deserve any of this. I’m so sorry this has happened to you my baby please come home. I love you forever Cody Fisher.”

She also wrote in her Instagram bio: “Love you forever my code”.

West Midlands Police wrote on Twitter: “Detectives have been working through the night and the investigation continues.

“We’re really pleased with the response so far, but are still appealing for people to get in touch who saw/recorded what happened.”

They included a link to submit information and photos or video footage.

In the appeal, they say no one has been arrested so far.

Detective Inspector Michelle Thurgood, who is leading the investigation, said in a statement on the West Midlands Police page: “This was a young man enjoying himself with friends on a Boxing Day night out and our thoughts are with his friends and family today.

“We know there were hundreds of people in the nightclub at the time. While we’ve spoken to a number of them already, we still need to hear from anyone who was there and who witnessed or even filmed what happened.

“We believe that the victim was approached by a group of people, and was then stabbed, so we’re working hard to identify all of those involved.”

Mr Fisher’s family said in a statement: “They have broken our hearts; I have lost my best friend. My family and I are asking for privacy and respectfulness at this heart-breaking time.”

Mr Fisher played for Stratford Town FC, who are in the Southern League Premier Division Central. He had also played for Bromsgrove Sporting.

Stratford Town’s chairman, Jed McCrory, told Sky News that “everyone is devastated by the news” and described Mr Fisher as a “talented footballer” and a “lovely, lovely young man”.

One of Mr Fisher’s friends, who played with him last season at Bromsgrove, told Sky News: “He was genuinely one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. He’d do anything for you.”

Prince Harry’s tribute to ‘granny’: ‘Thank you for your infectious smile’ | UK News

Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, has issued a tribute to “granny”, saying: “We, too, smile knowing that you and grandpa are reunited now, and both together in peace”.

It is the first time the royal has spoken publicly since the death of his grandmother, although he was seen greeting members of the public in Windsor on Saturday, alongside wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and the new Prince and Princess of Wales.

In a statement on his Archewell website, he wrote: “In celebrating the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen-and in mourning her loss-we are all reminded of the guiding compass she was to so many in her commitment to service and duty. She was globally admired and respected.

“Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life and now her everlasting legacy. Let us echo the words she spoke after the passing of her husband, Prince Philip, words which can bring comfort to all of us now: ‘Life, of course, consists of final partings as well as first meetings.’

“Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings-from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren.

“I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over.”

‘We smile knowing you and grandpa are reunited’

In the King’s first address to the nation on Friday, the day after the Queen died, he expressed his love for Prince Harry and Meghan.

“I want also to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas,” he said.

Prince Harry ended his tribute to the Queen saying: “Thank you for your commitment to service.

“Thank you for your sound advice.

“Thank you for your infectious smile.

“We, too, smile knowing that you and grandpa are reunited now, and both together in peace.”

His tribute comes as crowds began to gather along the route of the royal procession in Edinburgh.

The Queen’s coffin is being taken from the Palace of Holyrood House to St Giles’ Cathedral today.

King Charles will follow behind the coffin and lead a procession of members of the Royal Family.

Mourners will be able to view the coffin, with the Crown of Scotland placed on top, from 5pm.

This is known as lying at rest, rather than lying in state, which will not happen until the Queen is in London.

Once the Queen has been flown to England, the public will be able to view her coffin as it lies at Westminster Palace for four days – but there have been warnings of lengthy, overnight queues, to be able to do so.
