A joint statement issued by Mr Barber’s family added: “Adrian was a devoted family man, he adored his three children, two grandchildren, sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews.”

“He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He was always an active man and had many hobbies and interests throughout his life, from rugby, carnival, karate, squash, swimming, running and cycling.”
