By Lucy Mapstone

BBC Radio 4 presenter Steve Hewlett has died at the age of 58.

The broadcaster died in the company of his family at London's Royal Marsden Hospital while listening to the music of Bob Dylan following a battle with cancer.

Hewlett was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in March last year.

The BBC presenter and journalist recently revealed he had married his partner Rachel in hospital after being told he only had weeks to live.

The wedding was organised in the space of an hour after Hewlett learned that the treatment he was receiving for cancer could not continue.
