Welsh accountant killed by bee sting

Aberystwyth accountant had been in practice since 1973

Richard Francis, 59, the founding partner of
accountants Francis Gray in the
Welsh Town of Aberystwyth, has died after being stung by a bee while out on a
stroll.

Francis had been in practice in
Aberystwyth since 1973 and in 2006
merged with rival firm Robert Gray to form the new partnership.

He was also director with Tregaron-based estate agency Mews Properties as
well as a firm called Intofootball based in Stourbridge, near Birmingham.

He is believed to be only the fifth person in Britain to die from a bee sting
in the past 10 years.
