Actor Warren Clarke, known for his role in TV drama Dalziel And Pascoe, died today at the age of 67.

The star, who also appeared in films such as Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, is said to have died after a “short illness”.

Oldham-born Clarke was also known for his starring role in BBC series Down To Earth, about a family who leave the rat race to relocate to rural Devon.

His death was announced by the agency which handled his career, Independent Talent Group.

A statement issued on behalf of his agent said: “The actor Warren Clarke died peacefully in his sleep on November 12 2014, after a short illness.

“He will be greatly missed by his family and loved ones. At this time we ask that you respect their privacy in their time of grief.”

In his early days as an actor, he had roles as two characters in Coronation Street in the late 1960s, before establishing his movie career as one of the thuggish droogs who enjoyed “ultraviolence” along with their ringleader Alex (played by Malcolm McDowell) in A Clockwork Orange.
