Fundraiser for Aylesbury 'legend's' family

Tributes are being paid to a man seen as an Aylesbury legend.

Tattooist Vince Harris has passed away and now a funding page has been set up for his family.

The aim is to raise £5,000 for his wife Christine and son Quixote.

His friend Martyn is one of those behind it. He told us why so many have been affected by Vince's death:

"I think it was because of his work.

"No matter what you took to him, any design he would do for you.

"If he wasn't quite sure, he would take it home and work it out and, also, he wasn't pushy, he was a gentleman."

Several have shared memories on social media and on the funding page itself:

In memory of a much loved,liked and respected mam,who I will miss and am gutted he's passed away too soon.May you rest in eternal peace.

You will be missed Vince. It was great knowing you and I will missed our conversation about silly cars and Chinese art. Rest in peace my dear friend.
