Mike Neville - the legendary North East news anchorman - has died aged 80

Unless you came from the North East of England, you will not have heard of Mike Neville, but he was a Giant Geordie, who excelled in News and Humour. Blue Skies Sir :sad:

Aye, growing up in the North East, he seemed like one of the family. My wife, who didn't, has never heard of him. A bit of a shame he didn't become more widely known, but he went to London to work on 'Nationwide' and hated it.

I always assumed there was a bit of him in the Viz character Roger Mellie too. I can just imagine it :-)

Going by that photo on the BBC I wouldn't be surprised if the postmortem shows it died of shame :roll:

A niche interest perhaps, but it meant a lot to me. Grant Hart, drummer and songwriter with seminal US punks Husker Du, passes away from cancer-

Sad to hear about David Shepherd. I loved his paintings, as well as the wildlife and steam he also did a great many aviation and military, in fact he started out as an aviation artist and it was during a commission for the RAF in Africa that he started painting wildlife.

Lady Lucan found dead at London home:

And when I first glanced at the headline, I thought it said "LORD Lucan found dead at home", which would have been a turn up for the books.
