I received a shock phone call on Friday evening to say that Crispin Aubrey had died of a sudden heart attack at his home in Nether Stowey. He was a staunch founder member of the Glastonbury Festival press team and a resolute campaigner for Green issues who kept up the pressure on me constantly.
His campaign against nuclear power is well known and his intelligent analysis of the case against Hinkley C was so well defined.
He will be so sadly missed by us all and will be a hard act to follow. We wish his lovely wife Sue and their three children all the comfort they will get from their large circle of friends.
