The onscreen wife of actor John Bardon has paid tribute to him. He is understood to have died in the early hours of this morning, seven years after a debilitating stroke which has left him needing round-the-clock care in recent years.
June Brown said she hoped he was now "at peace".
I am so sorry that John has passed away but hope that he is now at peace after seven difficult years. I shall miss him very much as I loved him dearly. My thoughts are with his devoted wife Enda.
