Subject: Coronation Street creator Tony Warren dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/02/16 at 5:39 am

Coronation Street creator and writer Tony Warren has died at the age of 79, an ITV spokesman has said.
Warren, who was born in Pendlebury, Salford, in 1937, created the show for Granada Television in 1960.
The spokesman said the "legendary creator and acclaimed writer" died on Tuesday night "surrounded by his loving friends after a short illness".
William Roache, who has played Ken Barlow since the first episode, said Warren would be "desperately missed".
He described Warren, whose idea for the show was originally rejected by Granada, as the "father" of the soap.
