BBC presenter Dianne Oxberry died suddenly at the age of 51 after it was recently established that there was cancer, as it turned out today.

The married mother of two, who became known by collaborating with Radio Wright and Simon Mayo on Radio 1, described herself as a meteorologist and in 1994 again became a presenter of BBC North West.

The broadcaster worked in December, but died Thursday morning at the Christie Hospital in Manchester after her short illness & # 39 ;.

Mrs. Oxberry lived in the city with her husband Ian Hindle, a cameraman, and their two young children.

The couple met children's television on Saturday morning, The 8:15 From Manchester, and moved to London when she joined Radio 1, where she collaborated with Simon Mayo and Steve Wright.

Her husband said today: "Dianne was a wonderful woman and mother who fully embraced life.

She was an inspiration for everyone who knew and loved her, but also for the people who saw her every night in their homes and received as if she were part of their family.

& # 39; She will leave a huge void in our lives, but because of the remarkable person she was, she will forever live in our hearts.

& # 39; The children and I will miss her more than anyone can imagine. & # 39;
