ATHLETICS: THE athletics community is mourning the death of former Thurrock Harrier Cyril Barr, writes Ryan Goad.

Cyril was the father of Harriers distance running talents Gary and Stephen Barr, as well as Paul who was a member of Basildon AC.

All three were leading athletes on the county and national scene in the late Seventies and Eighties.

He was often seen trackside at Blackshots and at races as he followed his sons up and down the country.

Cyril was aged 85. His funeral will be at Pitsea Crematorium on Friday, January 17 at noon.
