Tributes paid after sudden death of Sellafield worker

Tributes have been paid to a Sellafield worker who died while cycling on Sunday.

Ray Straughton, 55, of Whitehaven, died while cycling in the Rogerscale area near Lorton.

It is believed that he fell from his bike after taking ill.

Mr Straughton was head of facilities management at the nuclear plant where he had worked for over 30 years.

A Sellafield spokesman said: “Ray’s death came as a great shock, he was very well known among many people on the site and will be sorely missed.

"Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”

Will you be turning out the lights in honour of those who fell in WW1?

Yes, it will be a fitting and moving collective tribute. I want to be part of it

No. I can't see it will make any difference to anything

I prefer to remember all those who died in all wars in my own way
