Islington born Only Fools and Horses start Roger Lloyd-Pack has died aged 69.
The actor, best known for playing Trigger in the long-running comedy, died at his home in Kentish Town last night.
His agent, Maureen Vincent, said he had pancreatic cancer and had “died at home surrounded by his family.”
Born in Islington, in 1944, he was the son of actor Charles Lloyd-Pack and the father of actress Emily Lloyd.
While he rose to fame playing the dopey road-sweeper in Only Fools And Horses, Lloyd-Pack is also well known for his roles as farmer Owen Newitt in The Vicar Of Dibley and Barty Crouch Senior in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
He was also an avid supporter of the campaign to save the Whittington Hospital and attended the protest march in spring last year which lead to a U-turn on cuts from hospital bosses.
Father Ted creator Graham Linehan was among those paying tribute online.
