Retired doctor Avatar Duggal has died at the age of 83.

Dr Duggal, who arrived in Gloucester in 1969, worked as a GP in Quedgeley while his wife Shakantula was a medical officer.

He opened a surgery in Ryecroft Street, Gloucester, serving the ethnic community after finding it difficult to get planning permission to open a surgery in Quedgeley.

After his retirement, in 2007, Dr Duggal was awarded the Glory of India award and certificate of excellence for his work to nurture the relationship between India and the UK.

You can leave your condolences, and any memories you have of Dr Duggal, at his Lasting Tribute site.

Dr Duggal died on Boxing Day following a brief illness and leaves behind a wife, three children and five grandchildren.
