Mr Bryan has run real estate and property businesses.

The family of Mr Jackson, who grew up in Richmond, said: “We are all devastated by the loss of Andrew. To us, he was a proud father of two young children, a loving husband and a caring son.

“He will leave a gaping hole in the lives of those close to him. We would now like to request space and time to grieve for him privately.”
