Phillip-LeishmanPhillip Leishman has passed away at the age of 61.

We reported last week that the veteran broadcaster was ill again after having a brain tumour removed last March.

Leishman’s close friend Des Coppins said over the weekend: “It was an aggressive form of cancer and it really caught up with him.

“It is just so sad.”
