Former Mirror sports reporter Keith Meadows has died

Keith Meadows, former Daily Mirror sports reporter in Manchester, has died after a long illness.

Meadows, 69, was suffering from cancer. He was NUJ father of chapel when Robert Maxwell closed down the Mirror’s northern operation.

He leaves a son, Mark, who is European sports correspondent for Reuters, based in London.

A non-religious service will be held at Fred Hamer’s Funeral Home, James Street, Rawtenstall, Lancashire on Friday 26 August at 1pm.

A celebration of his life will then take place in his favourite pub, The Black Dog, in his nearby home village of Crawshawbooth from 2pm.

He wasn’t a fan of flowers, just York City, so any donations should be made to MacMillan Cancer Support or the Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary near Ramsbottom.
