BBC News correspondent Brian Hanrahan has died at the age of 61.

Hanrahan, a former diplomatic and foreign correspondent, died after a short battle against cancer.

Brian will be best remembered for the line: “I counted them all out and I counted them all back,” from his report from the South Atlantic during the Falklands war in 1982.

Jeremy Bowen looks back on Brian’s life.

Colleagues of Brian have paid tribute to him on twitter.
