SHOCKED staff were left devastated following the death of the popular manager of BB's Coffee and Muffins, Paul Lloyd, in a car crash.

Mr Lloyd (46) died following a two-vehicle collision between the van he was driving and a lorry on the N52 near Kells.

He was pronounced dead at scene and his remains were removed to Navan Hospital.

The collision occurred at 10.30am last Thursday morning.

He lived in the Lakepoint Estate, Mullingar.

In a statement, the staff stated: 'It is with exceptional sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our manager and very good friend Paul Lloyd. As you might imagine, staff and customers are upset at this sad news.'

The premises at the Laurence Centre and Scotch Hall were closed on both Thursday and Friday.

'We appreciate all your messages of condolences from customers, centre staff and suppliers.

'Mr Paul Lloyd - Rest In Peace our friend,' they added.

Customers and friends forwarded messages of support, one writing 'Rip, thinking of his family and staff that worked with him. He will be very much missed behind the counter of BBs.'

Others described his death as heartbreaking, one adding 'and such a lovely man too, always had a smile'.

A memorial table was placed outside the premises in Scotch Hall, where customers were invited to sign a book of condolence.

Many did, while others left cards and flowers and messages of sympathy.
