Veteran BBC broadcaster Sir Jimmy Young dies peacefully at home

Veteran BBC radio presenter Sir Jimmy Young has died aged 95, his spokesman has confirmed.

Sir Jimmy was one of the original Radio 1 disc jockeys at the launch of the station in 1967. He moved to Radio 2 in 1975 and continued to broadcast until his retirement in December 2002.

Born Leslie Ronald Young in 1921, Sir Jimmy had already found fame as a singer, covering Nat King Cole's Too Young in the 1950s. However it was as a DJ that he became a household name, interviewing every serving prime minister during his time at Broadcasting House.

LBC radio presenter Iain Dale tweeted: "Much respect to Sir Jimmy Young who died today, aged 95. The word 'legend' is overused, but not in his case. A true icon of radio."

Timmy Mallett tweeted: "RIP Sir Jimmy Young. His 'unchained melody' was number one on the day I was born."
