For four decades he was widely regarded the outstanding reporter,  tabloid or broadsheet on Fleet Street.

John Kay, The Sun’s chief reporter, became a journalistic legend for the sheer number and quality of his scoops and exclusives. Well liked and admired by colleagues, his career faltered but later recovered - when his personal life was tinged by tragedy.

John Kelleher joined Kieran on the Hard Shoulder for this weeks last post.
