Just heard the sad news.

I often used to see him from my office walking down to Granada Studios when I worked in Manchester.

He was close to being a National Institution just like several other actors in Coronation Street but above all he was a great actor and apparently a very nice man

He will be sadly missed Sad

Alan Halsall (Tyrone) was visibly upset, talking about Bill, on the TV last night ...hearing others, from the cast,talking about him he was obviously much loved.
