The family of a Newbury murder victim have released a tribute to their lost loved one.

Mark Campbell died on Wednesday June 19 and was found by ambulance crews at a house in The Nightingales, Newbury.

Mark's family said: "The sudden and senseless loss of Mark Campbell, just the day before his 43rd birthday, has devastated the loved ones he has left behind. Mark was a loving father, brother and uncle with a big heart and a generous nature and his death is hard to understand."

"Words cannot describe the heartache and pain we feel right now, nor the sadness that we never had the chance to say goodbye. We take comfort knowing you are now at peace and you will be forever in our hearts. Your family loved you as much as you did them, and your memory will live on through them."

A BLUE plaque to Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb is due to be unveiled at the Oxfordshire house he loved next month.

It will be followed by a celebratory ticket-only garden party, which members of the public can attend, at the home he shared with his family in Thame on Sunday, September 30.

His wife Dwina said: "It is so well-deserved.

"Robin wrote a lot of songs in this house. It is where he created the Titanic Requiem with his son RJ and it is where Barry and Robin wrote You Win Again."

Mr Gibb died on May 20, aged 62, after a lengthy battle with cancer and pneumonia.

People flocked to his home - The Prebendal in Priest End, leaving floral tributes outside.

Then on June 8, thousands of people lined the streets to bid a tearful farewell to the music legend as he was laid to rest at St Mary's Church.
