Daily Times editor Terry Hunt said: “Nick was a consummate professional who simply loved the world of newspapers.

“My abiding memory of Nick will be working with him to produce a special Sunday edition of the EADT on the day the Princess of Wales died. We started work at 5am and by 10am had produced a complete edition of the newspaper. Nick’s contribution to it was immense.”
