RIP Shaw Taylor
Shaw Taylor, presenter of Police 5, has died at the age of 90.
Taylor fronted Police 5, the revolutionary precursor to show's like Crimewatch in alerting and using the public to fight crime, for a total of thirty years and was famous for his catchphrase "Keep 'em peeled"
He started life as an actor after serving in the RAF before moving into TV and radio presenting where his dark yet reassuring tones and benign, authoritative presence flourished.
He returned to to the show that made his name just last year when Channel 5 revived Police 5, albeit in a considerably smaller role, naturally.
