    Was a face I saw on a nightly basis for much of my childhood. Met him on the train going up to a magic weekend on my brothers stag so, he came over and talked to us all, a real gent and sorry to hear heís no longer with us, may he rest on peace.

    Really sad news. I grew up with him on Look North too. My wife has been interviewed by him several times and said he was a gent.

    Very sad to hear of his passing , watched him on Look North for years , they had a great tribute to him last night ( available on iPlayer I believe)
    A friend was a physio at Bramley RFU and Harry was there to do a piece and one of the players kept calling him Larry ( as in Grayson) which he took
    in good humour I believe.
    RIP Harry

    Wondering why people with no interest in watches seem to live on here?
