It is with regret that we report the passing of Michael 'Mick' Coyston of Ferguson's of Smithfield, who passed away on 12 May aged 69.

Mick had been suffering for the past 23 years with MS. He was cremated at Southend-on-Sea crematorium on 28 May.

Colin Taylor of CCLT Meats said: "It was a sad passing of a dear friend who enjoyed Smithfield all his working life."

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
