Former English radio and television presenter.
He presented regional news programmes for the BBC in North West England in the 1960s and 1970s, and in the same period, became known nationally for presenting It's a Knockout and Jeux Sans Frontières.
His later career mainly involved football reporting on BBC radio.
He has been described as "eccentric, erudite, egotistical – a distinctive personality who could balance light entertainment buffoonery with sports and serious news".
In April 2013, he pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting 13 girls, aged between 9 and 17 years, during the period 1967–86. When this became public knowledge at the beginning of May 2013, the BBC immediately terminated his contract.
