Tributes have been paid to a Birmingham businessman who died while on holiday with his family.
Nigel Lomas, the founding partner of Midlands based architect BBLB, collapsed while out running on St Mary's in the Isles of Scilly. The 55-year-old was on holiday with his wife.
Ed Baverstock, a partner at the practice, said: "We are all shocked and saddened by Nigel's death. He was so full of life and inspired great passion and enthusiasm in those around him.
"He has made many many friends in the property and construction industry over the years and his death is a great loss to those who knew him and worked with him. A dedicated family man, our thoughts are with his widow, Hilary, and children, Robert, Richard and Rachel."
After graduating from Birmingham School of Architecture, Mr Lomas began his career in 1979 and became chief architect at Redditch Borough Council before forming Bolton Lomas Bradshaw in 1988 with Terry Bolton and John Bradshaw.
