    Good evening. I tried to send this email to Maureen Smith at but I received a bounce-back. My email is com. I’d much appreciate a reply. I’m so sorry for your loss

    Dear Maureen,
    I am an old BBC Newsroom colleague of Andy, now living in Porlock. I saw in today’s Free Press the terrible news of Andy’s death.
    In the BBC Newsroom, he was always respected as a thoughtful, dedicated and principled journalist, qualities that he clearly brought to his life here in West Somerset, and the many causes that he devoted himself to.
    I have informed Andy’s former colleagues still working in the BBC newsroom of his death, and they, like me, are keen to know to whom they could write and to know of the funeral arrangements. In particular, they asked after his children; I’m ashamed to say I don’t know how old they are now, nor their circumstances.
    I’m sorry to approach you with this, but yours was the one contact email that I found after a quick online search. Please do pass this on to whoever may be best able to help me.
    My commiserations to you and the local party on the loss of such a lovely man.
    Yours sincerely
    Jeff Cox
