A DEVASTATED family have today spoken of their heartbreak after an Ipswich grandfather was killed doing a job he loved.

Cargo handler Brian Vince, of Lanercost Way, died on Friday while working at Ipswich port. He was 60.

It is thought he was killed when he was hit by a freight vehicle as he helped to load and unload a ferry which had arrived from Ostend, in Belgium.

His daughter Ronni-Louise Vince, 28, said: “He was at the heart of our family. We can't believe he has gone. He was the provider for all of us. We are still waiting for him to come home.”
