New Model Army rock drummer dies
Rob Heaton, drummer with cult 1980s band New Model Army, has died suddenly from pancreatic cancer aged 43.

Heaton, who also composed songs for the group, died on Thursday, EMI said.

He co-wrote many of New Model Army's hits such as Poison St and Here Comes the War, but left the band in 1998 after surgery to remove a brain tumour.

He went on to promote live music and had also been writing film scores for independent movies. He leaves a wife, Robyn, and a young son, Marlon.
