By Neil Lancefield

The wife of former television newsreader John Suchet has died following a decade-long battle with dementia.

Bonnie (73) died on April 15, a death notice in the Daily Telegraph confirmed.

It read: "Bonnie died peacefully on 15th April 2015 aged 73. Adored wife of John, devoted mother of Alec and Hereward, mother-in-law of Peta-Jane, grandmother of Finn and Alexa."

Her husband, a former ITN stalwart, thanked people on Twitter who offered their condolences.

Suchet (71) has previously said his wife was "taken" by Alzheimer's disease. In an interview in 2009, he said: "The Bonnie I loved has actually gone. It's as if she has died. Dementia has taken her."
