BBC Wiltshire presenter dies

Tributes have been made to former GWR and BBC Wiltshire presenter Sandy Martin who has died at the age of 53.

Sandy was diagnosed with a brain tumour in November of last year and passed away on Thursday evening, and is survived by his wife, young twins and a grown-up daughter.

BBC Wiltshire editor Tony Worgan said: "Although we’ve known for a few months that Sandy has been seriously ill, it still comes as a great shock to everyone at BBC Wiltshire. One thing people always noticed about Sandy was his infectious, never ending enthusiasm.

"I appointed Sandy as a member of the BBC Wiltshire management team 10 years ago and since then he has been a great support and loyal ally and I shall miss him very much.”

BBC Wiltshire Assistant Editor Shaun Hodgetts: "Our thoughts are with his wife Sarah and their family. "Sandy has been a trusted & loyal friend for more than 25 years. "He was so popular, so full of energy and so passionate about his work.

"He brought the very best out of his guests, from the likes of Jamie Cullum and Justin Hayward to the man on the street he'd only just met."
