The award-winning director and founder of Capital Radio died at lunchtime on Sunday.

The stars are tonight paying tribute to the late Sir Richard Attenborough who has died at the age of 90.

The award-winning director who was born in Cambridgeshire in 1923 has championed the British film business for more than 60 years as an actor, director and prolific movie-maker.

Sir Attenborough was also the very first person to present live on Capital Radio when it began broadcasting on the 16th October 1973. He also founded our first Capital charity, 'Help A London Child'.
