Tributes paid to British boss and family killed in Sydney seaplane crash

Tributes have been paid to a high-profile British businessman and his family after they were killed in a seaplane crash in Sydney on New Year's Eve.
Richard Cousins, the 58-year-old chief executive of the world's largest catering company, died alongside his sons Will and Edward, aged 25 and 23, his fiancée Emma Bowden, 48, and her 11-year-old daughter Heather while they were on holiday in Australia.
The group were were on a return flight to Sydney's Rose Bay, close to Sydney Harbour, when the small aircraft apparently nose-dived into the Hawkesbury River off Jerusalem Bay, 25 miles north of Sydney city centre, at about 3.10pm (4.10am GMT) on Sunday.
The pilot was named as Australian Gareth Morgan, 44, who worked for Sydney Seaplanes.
Mr Cousins was the chief executive of FTSE 100 company The Compass Group.
Sad news indeed.
It's no use debating a moron; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Just because you have the attention span of a fruit fly doesn't mean the rest of us are so encumbered.
