Mr Furie, 68, had represented his country in Judo at a competition in Belgium in the 1980s and he enjoys fishing and holidays abroad with his wife, 67, and who loves knitting, crochet and spending time on computers.

They have five children - Louise, Mark-Anthony, Paul, Laura and Nicholas and six grandchildren and five great great grandchildren.
