Mr Clarke, who was married with two children, ran a Twitter account called @12pmclub, aimed at encouraging people to exercise at lunch time.

His widow, Estelle Clarke, said: “He will be remembered for great belief in doing things to the best of his ability, something his family will continue in believing for him.”
