Death of wind-up radio inventor.

THE death has been announced of the inventor of the wind-up radio, Trevor Baylis, at the age of 80.

He is believed to have died of natural causes in his home on Eel Pie Island, in Twickenham, south-west London, yesterday morning.

David Bunting, who runs his company, Trevor Baylis Brands, said he had been ill for a long time and has no living relatives.

Mr Baylis, who was awarded a CBE for services to intellectual property in 2015, had been seriously debilitated, having suffered from Crohn's disease, he added.

Scotland Yard said his death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

The inventor was awarded an OBE in 1997 for his radio design and met the Queen to receive his CBE in 2015.
