Former Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe has died after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease, his son Rupert has said.
The 85-year-old, who led the party in the 1960s and 1970s, had been battling with the condition for more than 30 years.
Lord Steel of Aikwood, who succeeded him as party leader, said: "He had a genuine sympathy for the underprivileged - whether in his beloved North Devon where his first campaign was for 'mains, drains and a little bit of light' or in Africa, where he was a resolute fighter against apartheid and became a respected friend of people like President Kaunda of Zambia."
