Alan Whicker RIP
Journalist and broadcaster Alan Whicker has died at the age of 87 after suffering from bronchial pneumonia.
THE Friday Boys are a disparate group of men spread across Tyneside who meet once a week - 'always on a Friday' - to talk about the arts, raise a glass to recently departed heroes and villains and, at the evening's end, down a whisky or two. The FBs have only one golden rule - talk of the working week is strictly off-limit.
