You all know him as 'the guy off the news' - but we know him as our dad.
It's no surprise to us that so many of you loved him. What you saw on TV every evening was exactly who he was - authentic and honest in everything he did, relentlessly funny, ferociously intelligent, endlessly kind - he lit up every room he walked into.
We know there will be a lot of people in the North West who are going to miss him - so we know we are not going through this alone.
He was always so proud to be an adopted Northerner.
