THE Telegraph & Argus has opened this online book of condolence to bring together tributes to 47-year-old Mark Spence of Bradford.

Mark Spence and his family were sleeping when a chimney on the adjoining house is understood to have collapsed onto the roof of his house – sadly Mark lost his life.

Mark, who grew up in Horton Bank Top, was a long-time Bradford City fan and a former pupil at Hollingwood Primary School and Queensbury Upper School.

Anyone who would like to pay tribute or offer their condolences is invited to leave a message on this page.
