Shock at swine flu death

A community has been left stunned after a kind-hearted Mayfield man died suddenly from swine flu.

Garry Irvine (49) was known in Mayfield and Easthouses, and further afield, for his generosity and keenness to help anyone he met.

His family has received dozens of cards since he passed away last Thursday evening, as well as flowers from neighbours and friends.
