MORE than 100 people gathered together to pay their respects to Liam Chidlow who died in a car crash last week.

Friends, family and colleagues met at Junction One retail park in Rugby on Sunday night where they released dozens of lanterns in Liam’s memory.

More than 100 people and around 70 cars then drove in convoy to the A45 near Stretton on Dunsmore where Liam died in a car crash on Thursday.

One of Liam’s friends, Leila Jennings said: “Liam was a really special person. He had such a big heart and so much love to give. He always had a smile on his face and always had time for the people he cared about. He’ll be missed by many but forgotten by none.”

Liam Chidlow from Rugby died on Thursday morning last week after the car he was driving was in collision with a tree.

He was on his way back from the airport where he had dropped a friend off when the accident happened.

Liam had worked at Sainsbury’s in Dunchurch Road since he was 15 years old.

Store manager Dominic Zeall said: “The store has been a different place to be in the last few days. We all know something is missing and that is Liam. He came to the store when he was about fifteen and soon made many friends, he would always do anything for anybody. He worked in a number of departments in his eight years at the store and brightened the lives of everyone he worked with. He had a great sense of humour and this endeared him to all, young and old. I have only been at the store for two months but have got to know Liam very quickly and soon realised just how much he meant to everyone. The light he brought to the store will be greatly missed, and I know he will never be far from anyone thoughts in Sainsburys Rugby.”
