    I knew an Oxberry family in Castletown. Dunno if that was where she was from. RIP :cry:

    Really sad news. I didn't realise she was originally from Sunderland until this morning. She was a similar age to me and I remember her days on the Simon Mayo Radio 1 Breakfast Show. I moved to the North West in 1994 when she started as a weather presenter on North West Tonight and she was still doing that about four weeks ago. RIP Dianne.

    I remember the 8:15 from Manchester, but not too much detail about it.

    No age at all, tragic.

    I'll bet they are. Must be awful to have to report on the death of a colleague and friend

    Same here with regard to the 8:15. Summer replacement for Going Live, I believe. Theme song by Inspiral Carpets.

    RIP. As you say, no age at all...

    The 8:15 was a Summer replacement but only ran for a couple of years IIRC. It was whilst presenting the 8:15 show that tshe met her husband who was a cameraman and that's why she ended up settling in the North West.

    Another exile down here in Manchester, she's been part of the furniture on North West tonight for as long as I can remember. Might be known to some.
