The family of a man who died while fixing a military vehicle at Catterick Garrison have paid tribute to their'selfless and loving husband'.

Alistair Fergusson from Richmond died after becoming trapped while carrying out maintenance work on a vehicle. The 58-year-old was given CPR but sadly died at the scene.

It happened at around 9:50am on Saturday 18 January at Piave Lines Barracks at the North Yorkshire Garrison.

His family have released a tribute:

Alistair Ferguson was a selfless and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He greeted everything in life with a smile on his face and a positive attitude.

Alistair was very committed, dedicated and took great pride in his work whilst employed at DSG/Babcock. During this time he volunteered to be deployed on two tours to Afghanistan and he was truly honoured to serve his country.

Words cannot describe the shock and grief we are feeling. This tragic death should not have happened and we hope that no family ever has to go through this again.

We thank everyone for their kind words and ask that you kindly give us the privacy to grieve in peace."
