The Catholic Diocese of Leeds wrote to all Catholic churches in the area, asking them to hold prayers for the 61-year-old who taught at Corpus Christi Catholic College for 40 years.

Together they have a combined congregation of around 32,000 people, the diocese said.

A book of condolence has also been opened at the cathedral in Leeds for those who want to express their sympathies.
