Employer pays tribute to 'popular' engineer

A British man killed in a bus crash in Malaysia had recently moved to Singapore, where he worked for engineering company Atkins.

Dr Martin Grant, chief executive of Atkins' energy division, paid tribute to "extremely capable young engineer" Harry Woolhouse.

We are deeply upset to hear about the sad death of Harry Woolhouse in an accident in Malaysia today. Harry worked in our oil and gas division in Singapore and was a long standing member of the Atkins family.

He joined us as a graduate chemical engineer and had worked for us in the UK and more recently in Singapore.

He was a highly popular colleague who was an extremely capable young engineer who had a very promising career ahead of him. He will be very much missed by us all.

– Dr Martin Grant
