Former Watchdog presenter, Lynn Faulds Wood, has died aged 72, with husband John Stapleton and son Nick by her side, after suffering from a ‘massive stroke.’
The cancer campaigner’s family confirmed the tragic news in a statement which read: “Having suffered a massive stroke last night and a subsequent bleed on the brain, presenter and journalist Lynn Faulds Wood passed away peacefully at 12 noon today with her husband John Stapleton and son Nick at her bedside.”
Her friend, Dame Esther Rantzen, said: “I have known Lynn for many years. We made a series together which was huge fun but also very hard hitting because she was such an impressive and courageous consumer journalist.
“She fought for the rights of vulnerable people doggedly and determinedly and she is a huge loss to journalism and to her friends and family.
“We are all devastated at this news.”
