Dr Brian May had been visiting Sir Patrick Moore during his recent illness and yesterday appealing for messages from his Twitter follows to take to the ailing astronomer.
Today he thanked those who had sent Sir Patrick messages and said that he was, 'very peaceful in his last hours':
I took your kind messages down to him yesterday afternoon, tweet folks. Not sure how much he took in, but he felt the love. THANKS. Bri
Patrick was very peaceful in his last hours. With his beloved cat Ptolemy purring on his bed. And his pals all around. A great innings.
