Harry Gration, the former presenter of BBC Yorkshire’s Look North news programme, has died suddenly, aged 71.

Harry joined the BBC in 1978 and Look North in 1982. He presented his last show in 2020.

During his career, he won two Royal Television Society awards for sports documentaries and he won the RTS Best Presenter award twice.

Mr Gration’s wife, Helen, paid tribute to her husband, saying: “He will forever be with us.”

She added: “Our three boys and I loved Harry totally. We had an awful lot of fun with him and our home was his life.”

The Bradford-born presenter was a common face at Harrogate Town home game fixtures.
Our thoughts go out to his family at this time.
