Subject: Alan Simpson: Steptoe and Son writer dies at 87

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/08/17 at 7:22 am

Alan Simpson of writing duo Galton and Simpson has died at the age of 87, his manager has said.
The pair created sitcoms including Hancock's Half Hour and Steptoe and Son.
Simpson had undergone a "long battle with lung disease", manager Tessa Le Bars said.
Ray Galton's family said there were "no words" to express their feelings at the death of "Ray's partner and family friend over the last 70 years".

Another sad loss for the world of comedy. A truly talented writer. R.I.P. Alan Simpson. 😓
