CORONATION Street have paid tribute to a Bolton cameraman after his tragic death.

Glyn Pattison, 64, died at his home in Belmont View, Harwood, on Thursday, May 21.

The head of grips, a qualified technician for camera equipment, worked with ITV for many years before his death.

Friday's episode of the popular soap drama was dedicated to the loving grandfather, who had celebrated his birthday just ten days before his death.

Keith Jacobsen, who worked alongside Mr Pattison, posted his appreciation to Twitter after the episode.

He said: "So good of Coronation Street to dedicate tonight’s show to Glyn.

"He was a lovely guy to work with. RIP."

The Coronation Street team also donated £200 to a fundraiser set up in memory of the much-loved dad-of-two.

Laura Taylor created the page on June 10 to raise money for the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), with a target of £100.

Since then, over 170 people have helped to raise more than £3,500 in his name.

Dozens of messages of love and support have been left on the page, with many Coronation Street staff making their own donations to share their grief.

Jennie McAlpine, who plays Fiz on the show, Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Metcalfe, and Samia Longchambon, who plays Maria, all left their condolences to Glyn's family.

Tina O'Brien, who plays Sarah Platt, left a comment alongside a donation which read: "A true gentleman, he’ll be missed on the cobbles. All my love to you and your family Laura."

Kym Marsh, who played Michelle on the show for 13 years, wrote: "Glyn was a lovely man. So kind and always so sweet.

"He will be missed so very much by so many people."

Mr Pattison's smile and kindness were two key features mentioned by many colleagues and friends, with many remembering him for his warmth.

Parishioners at Christ's Church Harwood, where Mr Pattison helped as a sound technician, also expressed their grief at his passing.

A small funeral was held for Mr Pattison on June 9, although only ten people were allowed to attend under current government guidelines.

CALM is leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK.

The charity runs a free and confidential helpline and webchat 7 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone who needs to talk about their problems.
