A TRAFFIC light control box in the centre of Malvern has become an impromptu shrine to one of the town's characters, who died suddenly this week.

Floral tributes and photos have been taped to the box in memory of Hugh Baron.

Mr Baron was well known for his habit of sitting on the box, on the corner of Church Street and Graham Road, while smoking his pipe and watching the world go by.

A full tribute will appear in the Malvern Gazette.
