Michael Winner: Death Wish director dies aged 77

Film director and restaurant critic Michael Winner has died aged 77.

Born in Hampstead, London in 1935, he directed more than 30 films, including Death Wish, The Wicked Lady and Scorpio.

Geraldine Winner said her husband had died on Monday at his home in Kensington, London, where she had been nursing him.

Winner met his wife Geraldine 56 years ago, but did not marry until 2011 in a small ceremony witnessed by actor Michael Caine and his wife Shakira.

Michael once famously said, "When I die, it's going to read 'Death Wish director dies'".

Our thoughts go out to his wife Geraldine.
