Will fulfils wish of his late father

SCARBOROUGH-BORN Will Tyson is North Yorkshire’s newest livestock auctioneer.

Mr Tyson has recently taken up the gavel at Malton Livestock Market on behalf of family firm Cundalls.

“We are a farming family and with my brothers I help assist on the 400-acre farm at Snainton,” he said. “I went away to Harper Adams University and then took a job with a firm of chartered surveyors in Louth over in Lincolnshire.

“My dad always wanted one of us to be a livestock auctioneer and although I didn’t initially see myself auctioneering I now love it.”

Mr Tyson was thrown in at the deep end one week in Louth livestock market and has auctioneered ever since.

When the opportunity arosse to come back to his homeland he had no hesitation in joining the business now run by Tom Watson.

“I’ve known Tom for many years and I’m excited by the challenges that lie ahead here at Malton,” Mr Tyson said.
