I saw this in the news earlier and it saddened me.

He was probably best known for voicing Wallace from Wallace and Gromit, as well as his long lasting role as Cleggy in Last of the Summer Wine. Although I best remember him for his roles in the iconic Hammer Horror movies. He was a genuinely nice guy and a wonderful actor.



RIP

96 is a good age, can't really grumble about reaching those sort of numbers
