A face we saw often on BBC World is gone: RIP

Richard Stott, twice editor of the Daily Mirror, twice editor of The People, once editor of Today, and a regular on the BBC’s Dateline London programme, has passed away at age of 63.

“Perhaps the story that sums up his charactor and dedication the most was that he was working to the last editing Alistair Campbell‘s diaries from his hospital bed.”

Also read: Roy Greenslade on the original reporter who broke the other matchfixing scandal.

“He liked proper stories, understood how to run campaigns and was only too delighted to take on the high and mighty. Indeed, he was never happier than when he was cutting a hypocrite down to size.”
