A HOLME Valley man has been killed on holiday in Egypt.
Ian Bennett and his wife Carol, of Flush House, Holmbridge, who were enjoying a diving holiday, were travelling by minibus when the vehicle crashed.
Mr Bennett, 54, was killed and his wife, 52, who is a nurse, suffered minor injuries.
The incident happened on Saturday but details have been slow to emerge.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said the incident happened on a road between Dahab and the holiday resort of Sharm El Sheikh on the Red Sea coast.
He said Egyptian authorities were investigating the cause of the crash.
The Huddersfield coroner has also been informed.
Details of the incident are sketchy, but it is understood that the couple were on their way from their hotel to the airport at the end of a diving holiday when the crash happened.
It is believed that a tyre burst and the bus flipped over.
Members of the family flew out to Egypt at the weekend
Mr Bennett's body is expected to arrive back in Britain tomorrow.
Arrangements are being handled by Holmfirth funeral directors TW Birks.
A spokeswoman for the undertakers said the family were too upset to talk.
Mr Bennett was managing director of Greys Artstone Ltd, of New Mill Road, Brockholes.
He had worked as a builder for many years.
The company, which supplies reproduction stone and slate for the building industry, closed its premises on Monday as a mark of respect.
