Actor George Cole, best known for playing used-car salesman Arthur Daley in the television series Minder, has died aged 90.

The British star's career spanned 70 years and also included the role of Flash Harry in the early St Trinian's films.

Cole died in hospital with his family at his side, according to agent Derek Webster, who also represents his Minder co-star Dennis Waterman.

Mr Webster said: "It is with deep regret that I have to announce the sad death of one of our most loved and respected actors.

"George Cole passed away yesterday at the Royal Berkshire Hospital after a short illness. His wife Penny and his son Toby were with him at his bedside."

Minder, which ran from 1979 to 1994, brought the criminal underworld of west London to millions of homes in the UK.

I think George was the adoptive son of Alistair Sim - Miss Fritton in the St Trinians films. George learned a great deal of his acting from Sim and it showed at times. Both super actors and unique in style.
