    Saved a small baby, a pregnant woman and Bobby Charlton amongst others. He went into a 'burning fuselage', I think, twice. Heroic in the best sense of the word. RIP

    Harry Gregg of Coleraine, Doncaster Rovers, Man Utd, Stoke City and Northern Ireland, 87. RIP.

    Four Four Two have a tribute, quoting George Best

    “A great athlete and a great man who was a true friend to my father. Harry’s actions (at Munich) sunk in and he continued to rise in my estimation. Bravery is one thing – all goalkeepers must have it – but what Harry did was more than about bravery. It was about goodness.”

    Very sad. Talented reporter. Didn't realise how much id watched her till I saw the highlights reel. Tough on rte staff working all hours now this weekend. I'm sure many would have liked time to grieve and get together

    RIP
    A seriously funny man

    Former Northern Ireland deputy first minister and civil rights campaigner Seamus Mallon has died aged 83.

    He passed away in Co Armagh this afternoon.

    Mr Mallon became involved in the civil rights movement and the SDLP in the late 1960s.

    He went on to play a key role in the peace process, leading to the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.
