This blog regrets to pass on the sad news of the death, age 56, of Edward Stobart. Edward was the son of the famous Eddie Stobart, who survives him. As a former, early member of the Eddie Stobart Fan Club and Eddie Spotter, my condolences are with his family and friends.
Edward turned an ordinary haulage firm into a national icon. The lorries always cheer me up on a long, tedious journey. Very British, very sturdy, very Eddie.
