The former Labour cabinet minister died at the age of 70.

Dame Tessa Jowell was diagnosed with brain cancer in May last year.

A family spokesperson said: "It is with great sadness, and an enormous sense of loss, that we announce the death of Tessa Jowell.

"She died peacefully at the family home last night, shortly after 10pm."
