British TV comedy actor Ronnie Barker, who starred in Porridge and The Two Ronnies, has died aged 76.

One of the most loved and respected comedy performers of his generation, he was best known as one half of a double act with Ronnie Corbett.

But he also proved himself as an outstanding sitcom actor and script writer, winning four Bafta TV awards.

Chat show host Michael Parkinson told BBC News 24 he was "one of our very greatest comedy actors".

His agent said: "He died yesterday after a long period of heart trouble.

"He died peacefully and his wife was with him. He had been nursed at home for a long time."

He leaves a wife, Joy, and three children, actress Charlotte Barker, the actor Adam Barker and Larry Barker.
