July 3rd 2013

All of us here in Devon are deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the death of our good friend Vladimir Vega.
Details are still emerging regarding the exact details and as soon as we hear we will post further information.

Vladi is someone we will never forget and our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.
