Tributes have been paid to Vin Moseley, who passed away on August 6. The 74-year-old died at St Gemma’s Hospice, Leeds after a prolonged illness. He leaves his wife Jenny, his son Karl, who continues the family business and three grandchildren James, Robbie and Danni.

Paying tribute, Karl Moseley said: “Vin was a man of integrity who was renowned for his organisational ability and attention to detail. He was also kind and generous, a real gentleman, and he will be much missed by all of us.”
