David Nicholson dies aged 67

Twice champion trainer David Nicholson died suddenly over the weekend aged 67.

Tributes have been made by many in racing to 'The Duke', a man who influenced a number of top jockeys' careers.

A larger than life character, he'll be missed by many in the sport. The link to BBC's report is at:
