BBC broadcasting veteran Sir Terry Wogan has died.

This statement has been released by his family, “Sir Terry Wogan died today after a short but brave battle with cancer.”

The popular Eurovision Song Contest and Children In Need presenter has been described as a “national treasure”, who leaves a “remarkable legacy” by BBC director general Tony Hall. Rarely off the nations’s screens and radio waves for 50 years, the Irish 77 year-old became renowned for his genial style and gentle humour.

Chris Evans, who became Sir Terry’s successor on Radio 2’s breakfast show in 2009, said: “We are all so terribly sad upon hearing of the passing of Terry.”
