Actor Sir Alan Bates has died at the age of 69:
Sir Alan had a long career in the theatre, cinema and television. The brooding good looks that brought him early success in John Osborne's Look Back in Anger matured into a talent for a wide range of modern and classical roles.
On Sunday actor and Labour MP Glenda Jackson paid tribute to the actor on BBC Radio 4.
"I just thought that, apart from being a really first-rate actor, he was the most delightful person."
