Former member Phil passes away


It’s with regret that we announce the passing of one of Save The Trident’s original members, Phil Biles, who died just before Christmas.

Phil was formerly a firefighter at Durham Tees Valley Airport and joined our team through his friend and fellow member Peter Foster.

He quickly made his mark on the project, particularly through the dismantling process as his natural hands-on approach proved a perfect fit to the many technical challenges we faced.

His illness meant he wasn’t able to spend much time on the project since its move to Sunderland, but he was still a presence on the team and we know he was thrilled at the progress it has made to date.

RIP Phil.
