BBC Yorkshire political editor Len Tingle has died at the age of 63 after being diagnosed with cancer a year ago.

More information form the BBC Yorkshire web-site, here.

Helen Thomas, head of BBC Yorkshire, described him as the "gentle giant of politics in Yorkshire".
"As a colleague he was kind, honest and always ready to help others," she said.
"As a political journalist he was passionate in the pursuit of the real story.
"For many he made sense of the changing political landscape in Yorkshire and it's a tribute to him that so many politicians of today and yesterday saw him as journalist they could trust in good times and in bad."

BBC Look North presenter Harry Gration described him as a "fearless reporter on political issues".
"He was also an incredible team player and often rang me with tips about how to challenge the big political hitters when they came into Look North.
"He will be greatly missed by his colleagues who all loved and respected him."
