Funeral of truck driver who died in Italy to take place

Paul Stanyard was found dead in his cab in Italy

The funeral of a truck driver from Wakefield who died of a heart attack while at work in Italy will take place near Barnsley today.

A convoy of trucks will follow the cortege of Paul Stanyard, 59, before a service at Christ Church in Ardsley.

More than £25,000 was raised to bring his body home after his employer said their insurance didn't cover the cost of repatriating him.

Earlier this week, however, Matthews International Transport apologised and said it would make a donation to charity.
