Former Northern Ireland Secretary Mo Mowlam has died, aged 55. She went into hospital at the end of July before being moved to a hospice. It was unclear if her illness was linked to her previous brain tumour.

Ms Mowlam, Labour MP for Redcar between 1987-2001, oversaw the talks which led to the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. Tony Blair paid tribute saying Ms Mowlam was one of the shrewdest political minds he had encountered as well as being a remarkable personality.

Just heard on BBC News24. A very sad day.

I respect Mo Mowlam more than any other politician, because she was also frank and to the point. She wasn't afraid to answer a direct question for fear of reprisal.

She was also a very decent human being, and very entertaining.

55 is a very young age to die. Shame :(
