Novelist and playwright Peter Tinniswood has died aged 66 after a long battle against oral cancer.

Tinniswood was diagnosed with oral cancer, the result of 40 years of pipe smoking, in 1995. Following four years of treatment he had surgery resulting in the loss of his voice, which meant he had to have an electronic voice-box fitted.

Tinniswood was known for his stories about cricket - 'Tales from a Long Room' and its sequel, 'More Tales from a Long Room'. His most recent work was on the small-screen adaptation of HE Bates' 'Uncle Silas', starring Albert Finney.
