Best-selling US author Tom Clancy, known to millions for his Jack Ryan series of novels, has died aged 66, his publisher has confirmed.

Clancy wrote a string of best-selling spy and military thrillers.

Several of his books featuring CIA analyst Ryan were adapted into successful films, including The Hunt for Red October and Patriot Games.

The former insurance broker died in a Baltimore hospital near his Maryland home, according to reports.

In this video from a Panorama programme in 2002, Clancy speaks about his own prophetic plot in which a hijacked plane full of fuel is crashed into the Capitol Building.
