Patron of the WAVE Trauma Centre, actor James Nesbitt, has paid tribute to the former chair of the board of Wave, Professor Jean Orr CBE, who died suddenly last weekend aged 76.

"She was a woman of immense compassion who not only believed that those who bore the brunt of the Troubles should be helped and supported. She did everything she could to make that a reality," the Cold Feet star said.

"Jean was a life force, brilliant and generous. She had such humanity, compassion and great humility.

"She was a woman of immense creativity, colour and warmth. I loved her sense of humour, her optimism and her grace."
