Philip Eden
Jan 10th, 2018, 6:11pm
 
Philip Eden, the former weather forecaster at Radio Five Live, has died.

His brothers posted on Facebook:

“It is with profound sadness that we have to report the death of our brother, Philip Eden (Geoffrey Philip Eden), Meteorologist, Broadcaster and Author, on 4th January 2018. He had been suffering from Lewy Bodies dementia, but died as the result of head injuries sustained after collapsing and falling several days earlier. He died peacefully in a nursing home whilst receiving palliative care.

Please pass this sad news on to colleagues who knew or worked with Philip.

Details of the funeral arrangements will follow in a few days.

John and David Eden (brothers)”


There’s an obit in the Daily Telegraph, a paper he used to write for:
