He leaves behind a widow Kayleigh and his four week old baby daughter Sophie.

In a post on the companys Facebook page, Kayleigh said: It saddens me beyond belief to inform all our customers that Daniel Osborne, my fantastic husband and loving father to our four week old baby daughter Sophie passed away this morning in a car accident, he hit a sheet of ice and then hit a tree on his way to the shop. We will continue trading to keep his legacy alive.
