It was such a shock to hear of the death of such a decent man. I worked with Martin on Traffic for many years, as a PC and as a supervisor. It was a privilege to know and work with Martin. He was a lovely chap, kind, thoughtful and a pleasure to know. At work he was thoroughly professional, dedicated, knowledgeable and reliable. I well remember the many valuable chats I had with him in the Traffic office at Blandford, one of which led to what is truly one of my life’s highlights, an off duty day out in the Land Rovers of Martin and Ashley Farman touring the tracks and lanes of the Purbecks on a beautiful day. I will always remember Martin fondly… but his jokes were terrible. Please accept my deepest condolences.
