Former Prime Minister Sir John Major has paid tribute to BBC broadcaster John Cole, saying that when he "spoke, everyone listened."
John Cole was one of the finest political correspondents of my lifetime, and a real credit to his profession. When John spoke, everyone listened.
He was always well-informed, balanced - and trustworthy - and set the bar very high for all who followed.
My thoughts and sympathy are with his family.
