John Hume: Derry is a poorer place with the passing of Gerry Anderson
Former SDLP leader John Hume has paid a warm tribute to BBC broadcaster, the late Gerry Anderson who he said was a unique character held in such high regard by many.
"Gerry was a unique character, and Derry and the BBC are a poorer place for his passing," said Mr Hume.
"I had such high regard for Gerry who put a smile on the faces of so many people.
"Pat and I extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Christine and the family, and to all of Gerry's colleagues."
