A famous weather anchor for the BBC has sadly just passed away. Dianna Oxberry has died at the age of 51 following a short illness.
"Oxberry worked alongside Simon Mayo and Steve Wright on Radio 1 before moving to North West Tonight in 1994, where she worked until her death. She was the main weather presenter on the program and also fronted regional current affairs show Inside Out North West," reported the Telegraph.
The journalist's husband, Ian Hindle, said: "Dianne was an amazing wife and mother who embraced life to the full. She was an inspiration to all who knew and loved her but also to the people who watched and welcomed her into their homes each night as if she were part of their family too."
"So sad to say that my much loved colleague Dianne Oxberry died yesterday, after a short illness, at The Christie Hospital in Manchester. Everyone at @BBCNWT is heartbroken, but all our thoughts are with her family. Rest in peace x," wrote Roger Johnson on Twitter.
Please join us in praying for her family during this awful time. We ask that God's healing peace bring them comfort.
