Mr Chandler, of Preston Drove, Brighton, died along with fellow musicians Andrew Graney, 29, and Rohan Chadwick, 27, and doctors Matthew O'Donnell, 30, and Christopher Janaway, 28, when the recovery truck they were travelling in smashed into the back of a moving lorry on the M25 on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7.
