Oo-eck. Just been watching a small tribute to him on Nort-West Tonight and discovered that he was born in Wallasey. So was my mother and she came from Hughes stock.

Maybe a distant relative? Will have to check this out!

I remember him in all the above and am sorry to hear he has died so young from prostate cancer which in 2010 he thought he had beaten
