Writer and restaurant critic AA Gill has died aged 62.

He announced he'd been diagnosed with "the full English of cancers" in his weekly column with The Sunday Times.

The father of four married his partner Nicola following the diagnosis.

Political Editor of the Sunday Times in London, where Gill was a columnist, tweeted: “AA Gill, the writer who first made me buy the Sunday Times, the best of us for thirty years has died. Very sombre mood in the office.”

The father-of-four, married to Home Secretary Amber Rudd during the 1990s, said the disease had spread to several parts of his body, restricting his ability to exercise and travel during treatment.
