It is with great sadness we announce the death of former west Essex paramedic John Styles.

John joined the service in 1986 and retired after 26 years. John spent his career working at Harlow, and then Stansted station up until it closed in 2012. When John died, his wife Sue and ex-crew mate Jacqueline Christie were at his bed side. Along with Sue, John leaves two sons and his grandchildren.

Sue has requested a service funeral, details of which will follow.
