Written By: Philip Eno on 02/08/16 at 8:36 am

The writer Margaret Foster has died at the age of 77, her husband Hunter Davies has announced.

She was best known for her novels Georgy Girl and Diary of an Ordinary Woman.

The award-winning author had been suffering from cancer in her back.

Mr Davies, who is also a writer, said: "She had a double mastectomy 40 years ago so she's had a remarkable life considering she had it for so long."

Forster died on Monday morning at the Marie Curie Hospice in north London.
