DJ Tony Blackburn has paid tribute to the broadcaster and presenter David Jacobs, who has died at the age of 87.

Jacobs, who stepped down from his Radio 2 programme last month because of ill health, died at home "surrounded by his family", the BBC said in a statement.

He started at the BBC in 1945, hosting shows including Housewives' Choice, Juke Box Jury and Any Questions.
