A former BBC presenter who became the voice of the ‘Mind the Gap’ announcements on the London Underground has died of cancer.
Phil Sayer, 62, whose voice was heard on most of the automated PA systems on railway stations across the UK, died on Thursday.
Mr Sayer presented a daily show on BBC GMR (now Radio Manchester) in the 1980s and also read the regional TV news.
He and his wife Elinor Hamilton later set up a company as voice-over artists.
Writing on their Facebook page, she said: “Phil Sayer – voice of reason, radio, and railways. A dearly loved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
“We are sorry to announce that this service terminates here.”
