DEATH OF ‘ARRY, AGE 84

TRIBUTES were flooding in last night for legendary BBC boxing commentator Harry Carpenter, who died in his sleep on Saturday at the age of 84. Carpenter was the BBC’s voice of boxing for almost half a century and was known for his great double act with Frank Bruno, whose catchphrase “Know what I mean, ‘Arry?” became synonymous with the pair. Bruno is said to be “very upset and shocked” by the death of his friend.
