Tributes paid to railway workers struck by train near Port Talbot


Tributes have been paid to two railway workers who died after being struck by a train in South Wales.

Michael “Spike” Lewis, 58, and 64-year-old Gareth Delbridge were hit by a passenger service while working on tracks near Port Talbot on Wednesday morning.

In a statement released by British Transport Police (BTP), the family of Mr Lewis, who was from North Cornelly, said: “He was known by everyone, and loved by everyone.

“We would like to thank everyone so much for their support during this difficult time and ask that we are now given the space we need to grieve.”

Mr Delbridge was described as a “true gentleman and all-round great guy” by the Kenfig Hill Rugby Social Club in Bridgend.
