it is with sadness that we note the death, on 13 March, of Brian Bush, who until recently ran the newsagents outside Angel tube station with his wife Margaret.

For more than 30 years, Brian was up in the very early morning to open his stall as the station opened, and he and Margaret ran the stall every day, except for Sunday, right up to early evening. He was a warm and funny man, a real Islington character, and will be much missed.

Our deepest sympathies to Margaret and the family
