November 5, 2014, 5:02 pm

Police can confirm that the man who died in an industrial incident on 3rd November was Michael Padley, aged 60, of Ford House Farm in Baildon, West Yorkshire.

Police were called at 10:08am to a farm in Kirkby Thore, Penrith, where he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The family of Michael have released the following tribute:

“Mick was a dairy farmer at Baildon until 2000 when he and Val, his wife, diversified into Bed and Breakfast and equestrian.  Mick loved the role of serving his guests with their breakfast and his humour kept everyone entertained.  He loved rugby and he made numerous friends through his association with rugby clubs at Cleckheaton, Goole, and Ripon.  He also liked football and loved Manchester United football team.

“He loved his work with his long-time friend Charles Payne of Paynes Dairy in Boroughbridge.  Mick had many roles within the company.  He was known affectionately as “Gobby” by everyone he knew and was a true friend.  Mick loved to travel and often visited Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  He recently went to Port Isaac to view the scenes from Doc Martin and sample the great beer.  Mick and Val were married for 32 years.  Val is overwhelmed by the number of cards, flowers, and emails she has received from around the globe.  His loss leaves a big hole in the lives of many.”

His death is not being treated as suspicious and is being investigated by the HSE.
