Broadcasting colleagues are paying tribute to out BBC Liquid News presenter Christopher Price who's been found dead at his London home. Police say there are no suspicious circumstances but are awaiting results of a postmortem.
34 year old Christopher, who once described himself as "fat, bald, homosexual - not ideal television material at all", was one of the BBC's highest-paid presenters earning more than Anna Ford and Huw Edwards but friends say he suffered from depression.

BBC Media Correspondent Nick Higham said :"He was witty, caustic and camp by turns and the BBC was grooming him for great things. His death is a great loss and he will be extraordinarily difficult to replace."

His boss Roger Mosey, head of BBC TV News said: "Christopher's greatest contribution was to BBC Choice, but in recent years he was also a highly-talented presenter on Radio 5 Live and on BBC News 24."

"It was on News 24 that he pioneered Zero30, which became Liquid News. We will miss his journalism as well as his wit, and he was a sparky and entertaining colleague as well as a much-loved presenter on screen."

Christopher was due to anchor BBC Choice's coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest, and on the day of his death the BBC announced that Liquid News would be replaced by a special tribute.
