Sara I’m shocked and saddened to hear about Andy. We worked together for many years at AFX and Thomson Financial News, latterly very closely indeed, and after the move to Reuters we got together for the occasional grumble. He was such a professional, courteous, generous, and funny man. We hadn’t spoken for quite a while, but I heard he was doing very well at the BBC. His legacy lives on at Reuters, where they clearly based their Lynx editorial platform on AFX’s Lanark, which he did so much to develop and perfect. Andy was a good man and a great colleague; and a snappy dresser in his Paul Smith suits. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love and regards, John Manley.
