Veteran broadcaster Cliff Michelmore has died aged 96. Cliff was a much loved presenter of the nightly Southern Television programme, Day by Day.

A prolific presenter and former RAF Squadron Leader, he anchored the BBC coverage of the Apollo moon landings and several general elections.

BBC director-general Tony Hall led tributes to the "outstanding broadcaster", who had a light style popular with audiences yet possessed the skill to carry out hard-hitting interviews and hold his nerve while covering events of great historical importance.

In a 2013 interview, Sir Michael Parkinson ranked Michelmore with broadcasting greats Sir David Frost and Alan Whicker and hailed the standards their generation set in broadcasting.

ITV News Presenter Alastair Stewart described Michelmore as a "truly great presenter and a delightful man".

The scheme's trustees say they hope to get planning permission next year.
