Veteran broadcaster Sir Jimmy Young dies aged 95

The long-serving DJ, who spent almost three decades at BBC Radio 2, died "peacefully at home" on Monday afternoon with his wife Alicia by his side, a family spokesman said.

He has been described as a "radio institution" and had been a regular on the airwaves since he helped to launch BBC Radio 1 in 1967.
