‘BIG’ George Webley passed away on Saturday, after collapsing at his family home in Milton Keynes.

A huge character and even bigger supporter of Milton Keynes, George had spent the past five years working as a radio presenter for BBC London Radio, and back in 2002, while hosting for Three Counties Radio, his talent on the airwaves earned him a Gold Sony Award for Best Music Presenter.

One of his most famous compositions was the theme tune to the BBC’s Have I Got News For You.
