Sad news that Tintagel (Arthur King) died suddenly last night. He had just come out of hospital and arrived home when he had a severe heart attack from which he did not recover.

Very sorry to hear this news, likewise as Caradon said.

I didn't know him either, although I now realise why he was called 'Tintagel' (I come from Port Isaac a few miles down the coast) so it appeared to have nothing to do with where he was from!

I had a few 'post chats' with him on here but that was it.

Condolences to his family.
