Former Labour prime minister Gordon Brown tonight said:
Tonight we mourn the passing of Malcolm Wicks, who was a great thinker, writer, campaigner and parliamentarian.
He was a passionate advocate of social justice, a conscientious constituency MP and a great minister throughout the Labour Government.
I talked to him during his long period of ill-health and I marvelled at his courage and tenacity in fighting his illness. He will be sorely missed and our thoughts are with his family.
