David Croft dies aged 89

Dad's Army co-writer David Croft dies at the age of 89
Croft's military sitcoms It Ain't Half Hot Mum and Dad's Army, written with Jimmy Perry, were hits in the 1970s.

Croft, who was awarded an OBE in 1978 for services to television, worked alongside Jeremy Lloyd on both the department store sitcom and wartime farce 'Allo 'Allo, which was set in Nazi-occupied France.

Although he retired in the 90's his name is still synonymous with British Comedy.
