A 34-year-old Shropshire man has died in an explosion while working in Afghanistan.
He had been working for DynCorp International, an American company, clearing mines and other explosive devices left over from previous wars.
Mr Fitzpatrick, who lived in Priorslee, was killed on November 20.
His father, Ian Fitzpatrick, paid tribute to his son, whose work, he said, had saved many lives.
