A bus driver working for First in Bristol has died of coronavirus.
Martin Egan, who worked for the firm for 40 years, died on Saturday.
James Freeman, the managing director of the bus firm, said he was a "highly respected" member of the team.
Quote Message: Martin last drove a bus more than two weeks ago, before he was taken ill. We have identified those that we understand had come into recent contact with him, including supervisors and drivers, and they have since been in self isolation. Martin was a tremendously loyal employee and a great character, having worked for our business for 40 years. He started as a driver at our Muller Road depot in 1980 and then moved to our Lawrence Hill operation later in his career. Personally, I will always remember his huge smile when we recently launched our new gas buses in Bristol. His presence around the depot will be greatly missed. from James Freeman
