Tributes have been paid to a British family - including a high-profile businessman and an 11-year-old girl - after they were killed in a seaplane crash in Sydney on New Year's Eve.
Leeds-born Richard Cousins, the 58-year-old chief executive of FTSE 100 company Compass Group, died alongside his sons Will and Edward, aged 25 and 23, his fiancee Emma Bowden, 48, and her young daughter Heather while they were on holiday in Australia.
The group were were on a return flight to Sydney's Rose Bay, close to Sydney Harbour, when the small aircraft apparently nose-dived into the Hawkesbury River off Jerusalem Bay, 25 miles north of Sydney city centre, at about 3.10pm on Sunday.
A sixth person on board, Sydney Seaplanes pilot Gareth Morgan, 44, also died.
Friends and colleagues described Mr Cousins, who was a graduate of the University of Sheffield, as "well known and respected" after he helped transform Compass' fortunes upon becoming the ailing catering firm's boss in 2006. He had been due to step down from the role in March this year.
