RIP Terry Sue-Patt
Really sad news for anyone of my generation; Grange Hill star Terry Sue-Patt has been found dead at his home in Walthamstow, North London aged just 50.
Sue-Patt played football mad pupil Benny Green in the hit BBC kids programme and was the first character seen in the very first episode, kicking his football against a wall and getting told off.
He starred in the series from 1978 to 1982 and after leaving appeared in a range of programmes and films including Alan Clarke's The Firm, Cardiac Arrest, The Comic Strip Presents and Big Deal. I'd personally only watched him last weekend in the Screen One drama Ball-Trap on the Cote Sauvage.
Neighbours had alerted police with their concerns leading to the discovery of his body. No cause of death has been released as yet but the police have said they are not treating it as suspicious.
