Shock as huntsman found dead at Albrighton home

Huntsman Ray Shaw was discovered at his property in Kennels Lane after failing to turn up to a meet.

Colleagues at the Albrighton Hunt today spoke of their shock and paid tribute to a 'very hardworking huntsman'.

Mr Shaw, who was in his mid 40s, had worked for the Albrighton Hunt for the past two-and-a-half years.

He was employed along with his wife Margaret and they looked after the hounds and horses. Mr Shaw was responsible for getting the hounds and horses ready for hunt meetings.

West Mercia Police spokesman Richard Ewels confirmed officers were investigating Mr Shaw's unexplained death but at this stage no-one else is thought to be involved.
