The son of Nelson-born antiques expert Eric Knowles has been killed in a motorway accident.

Seb Knowles died on Friday morning on the M40 in Buckinghamshire when his Mercedes car was in collision with a lorry.

His father, who was educated at Edge End High School, is a regular on TV’s “Antiques Roadshow” and other antiques programmes. The Burnley FC fan’s love of antiques was fired by visits to Burnley’s Towneley Hall and he returned there in 2013 to film “Antiques Roadshow”.

His son worked as a DJ in London. He was a Wycombe Wanderers FC fan and a minute’s applause was held before the club’s game at Northampton at the weekend.
