Berezovsky's daughter's 'extraordinary' father tribute

The family of Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky’s second wife Galina Besharova have released a tribute to him through Thames Valley Police.

Written by Mr Berezovsky’s daughter Anastasia, it read:

“My father was not the typical parent, nothing about him was ordinary. He has coloured my life in infinite ways, and I know that what he concerned himself most with was making all his children proud.

“There aren't enough words in any language that can somehow express everything that he was and everything he will continue to be. The only word that comes close is extraordinary.”

A post-mortem found the cause of Mr Berezovsky’s death to be "consistent with hanging".
