Dave Callaghan, the man widely regarded as the voice of Yorkshire cricket, has died at the age of 63.

The broadcaster suffered a heart attack at the weekend and died in hospital on Monday night (12 March).

Yorkshire County Cricket Club (YCCC) said he was a "much loved-personality" and "held in the highest regard".

The YCCC team held a minute's silence and wore black armbands in tribute to him ahead of their game with Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club on their current tour in South Africa.
