The BBC reports:
Captain Sir Tom Moore has died with coronavirus. The 100-year-old, who raised almost £33m for the NHS, was taken to Bedford Hospital after requiring help with his breathing on Sunday.
His daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore said he had been treated for pneumonia over the past few weeks and last week tested positive for Covid-19. The Army veteran won the nation’s hearts by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday.
In a statement, Capt Sir Tom’s daughters Mrs Ingram-Moore and Lucy Teixeira said: “It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear father, Captain Sir Tom Moore.
Thank you for everything Captain Sir Tom Moore – you were a symbol of hope throughout this awful period and you will never be forgotten 💙https://t.co/uBNJQ3CxrD
