Neil Moon, 49, of Broadgate, Whaplode Drove, Spalding in Lincolnshire, and Jonathan (Jon) Collins, 34, of Changi Road in Watton, were found dead at Banham Poultry in Attleborough on Thursday, October 4.

Police were called to the site around 1am following reports two subcontractors from a pest control company working on the site had been found dead.

Mr Moon’s son said: “I will miss listening to his stories, my life will never be the same without him. He was my hero and the best father I could’ve ever asked for.”

His daughter said: “The colours of the world may constantly change, but Dad my love for you will always remain the same. I will miss him so much and cherish all the memories we had together.”

Mr Moon’s wife said: “Neil was the most amazing husband and father. There are no words to describe the loss I feel. Life will never be the same again. Tonight there will be a brighter star in the sky.”

Mr Collins’s family described him as “a devoted family man who will continue to be loved and missed by all those who knew him”.

The results of post mortem examinations are now being awaited. An inquest into their deaths has been opened and adjourned.
