Wine Critic Jancis Robinson has paid tribute to Patrick Sandeman, a wine expert from London, who died in a skydiving accident at the weekend. She described him as "great fun" and "the most popular man in the wine trade".
Mr Sandeman, who was 53, co-owned Lea and Sandeman, which had four shops in Chelsea, Kensington, Barnes and Chiswick. He died when his parachute collapsed after he collided with another skydiver at Sibson Airfield, near Peterborough. The other man, who's thought to be French, survived the fall.
