The family of a Guildford father, who was killed in a violent assault on board a train yesterday (4 January), have paid tribute to him on what would have been his 52nd birthday. 

Lee Pomeroy, 51, was stabbed multiple times following an altercation on-board a Guildford to London Waterloo train at around 1pm. 

The married father of one, was on his way into London with his 14-year-old son for a day out when the deadly incident happened. 

Today his family have paid tribute to Mr Pomeroy, saying: “Lee took his son on a trip to London hoping to spend some quality time with him which was cut short by an horrific and pointless attack. 

“Lee would have had his birthday today but did not get to see his presents. He was an honest, bright person, who loved music very much, he knew history and art and he was a bachelor of science in Maths. He was a devoted family man and did everything for his family. He was an honourable man and would always help somebody who was in trouble. He was a loving husband and father, he will be deeply missed by all his family.” 
The family are appealing for privacy at this difficult time as they come to terms with their loss.
