Tributes have been paid to scout leader Roger Engel who died suddenly on Saturday.

Members of the Ridgeway Scout Group, which meets at its hut in Grove Road, Tring, have been devastated by the news that their leader of 15 years suffered a suspected heart attack.

Roger, 62, of Malting Lane, Aldbury, became involved with the scouts when his sons, now grown up, were members of the movement. As a qualified sailing instructor he has taught thousands of children in the art and taken them on camping trips away.
