A former Warwickshire Chief Fire Officer who "brought people together" has died just four months after retiring.

Kieran Amos passed away on Tuesday (November 23), with family at his side, after a short illness, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue service confirmed.

Kieran retired in July 2021 after 30 years of service.

He joined the Warwickshire team in April 2019 having started his career with the then Surrey Fire Brigade.

A WFRS statement said: "As professional and skilled as he was, what made Kieran so special was how he worked.

"He brought a togetherness to the people he worked with, and a determination that everyone should have a say in how the service could be improved.

"Coupled with that was his utter commitment to working with all our partners and our communities so that they could be part of that journey."

The service added that his legacy will be built on and he will be greatly missed.
