Labour MP Sir Tony Lloyd has died at the age of 73, his family said in a statement.

It comes just a week after the Rochdale MP revealed he was suffering from an ‘untreatable’ form of leukaemia and had left hospital to ‘spend the time I have left with my family’.

The veteran politician spent two spells in the House of Commons, which came either side of a stint as Greater Manchester’s inaugural Police and Crime Commissioner and a period as the region’s mayor.

It read: ‘We are absolutely devastated to announce the death of Sir Tony Lloyd MP, our beloved “Joe”, “Dad” and “Grandad”.

‘He died peacefully this morning surrounded by his family, as was his wish.

‘He was working until a few days before his death as his passion was helping others.

‘He devoted his life to serving and making a difference to the lives of those he met including his constituents, colleagues, friends and family.

‘We would like to thank all the dedicated doctors, nurses, healthcare assistants and other hospital staff who have provided him with care, as well as the blood and platelet donors who gave him an extra four years of life.’
