The statement paid tribute to the actor, calling him a "true one-off" and a "brilliant storyteller".


"He had a funny anecdote for every occasion. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time. We will miss him terribly."

Sad news indeed 

Always enjoyed the Likely Lads - an episode was filmed on our street.

It captured the changing of the times - the decline of the west area of the city and its sad demolition.

It was quite tragic at times,

"Oh what happened to you - whatever happened to me? What became of the people we used to be."
