- Born in east London, Crow moved to Essex as a toddler and left school at 16
- His first job on London Underground was as an apprentice track worker
- He became a representative for what was then the National Union of Railwaymen aged 20
- He took part in a nationwide day of action in 1980 ordered by the TUC, and the next strike he took part in was on the Tube, the day after returning from his honeymoon in 1982
- He took up his role as general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union in 2002, and led several strikes during his tenure, most recently last month in protest at closure of ticket offices.
He was not afraid of leading his members into industrial action, as he said himself:
I don't shirk from taking industrial action. Our job is to negotiate the best pay and conditions.
Industrial action is the last resort and you don't take it lightly - but when you start you don't finish until you have won. That's what I have been brought up on.
Interpol secretary general has said he believes the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines plane is not a terrorist incident.
"The more information we get, the more we are inclined to conclude it is not a terrorist incident," Ronald Noble said.
He said the two men had swapped their passports in Kuala Lumpur to use stolen Austrian and Italian passports to board the missing flight.
Bob Crow, who was 52, was one of the most high-profile left-wing union leaders of his generation, and a passionate defender of the rights and working conditions of members of his RMT union.
Never afraid of controversy, he sparked as much anger from passengers hit by rail and Tube strikes as praise from his members for winning pay rises.
He was constantly involved in industrial disputes and campaigns and led a walkout by London Underground workers last month in a dispute over ticket office closures.
– Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
I'm shocked. Bob Crow was a fighter and a man of character. Whatever our political differences, and there were many, this is tragic news.
Bob fought tirelessly for his beliefs and for his members.
There can be absolutely no doubt that he played a big part in the success of the Tube, and he shared my goal to make transport in London an even greater success. It's a sad day.
Nigel Evans faces the first of his accusers at court this morning, in his trial on rape and sexual assault charges.
The MP is charged with nine offences against seven young men. The prosecution say the alleged offences happened between 2002 and 2013.
Jurors heard that the MP for Ribble Valley, and former Deputy Speaker of the Commons, used his "influence" to sexually assault others.
Evans denies all the charges.
Authorities have identified a second man travelling on a stolen passport onboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight as Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza.
The Iranian man on the left has already been named as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, 19, who is "not likely to be a member of a terrorist group".
The Malaysian military believe it tracked the missing flight MH370 on its radar to the Strait of Malacca, a military source has told Reuters.
The unions Unison and the London region of the Fire Brigades Union have paid tribute to the late RMT union boss Bob Crow:
Very sad news about Bob Crow - RIP a union leader who did the best for his members
Bob Crow has died, aged 52. Absolutely devastating news. The thoughts of London FBU are with Bob's family and all our comrades in the RMT.
A new study has discovered a link between obesity and lower academic achievement among teenage girls.
The research found that girls who were obese at the age of 11 had lower attainment at ages 11, 13 and 16 when compared to those of a healthy weight.
Adolescent girls who were obese were found to achieve grades "lower by an amount equivalent to a D instead of a C", researchers said. The study found no similar link among boys of the equivalent age.
The research, carried out by Dundee, Strathclyde, Georgia and Bristol universities was published in the International Journal of Obesity and claims to be the most comprehensive of its kind.
