-->

NSW Labor has offered its heartfelt condolences to the family of Environment and Heritage worker Glenn Turner following his tragic death while undertaking his job in far western NSW.

We are extremely saddened to learn of the death of Mr Turner while he was simply carrying out his duties as an Environment and Heritage Officer.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mr Turner - who will be grieving over the loss of a husband, father and friend.

The reported circumstances around the death of Mr Turner are shocking and distressing for the entire community.

It is impossible to comprehend how someone can leave for work in the morning and not return home at night.

This matter is now in the hands of the NSW Police, and we have every confidence that they will complete a comprehensive investigation.

This is a sad day for NSW. While the majority of the community did not know Mr Turner, today we all share in the grief of his family and friends over his tragic death.
