Tributes paid to Carol Barnes
Monday 10 March 2008
Tributes were paid yesterday after the death of the former ITN newsreader Carol Barnes on Saturday.
Barnes died in hospital in Brighton after suffering a stroke a week earlier. Her son James paid an emotional tribute, saying he would be forever indebted to her.
"My mum was a beautiful, kind and delicate person – a person loved by many and whom I am desperately proud to call my mother," he said.
"She did everything in her power to love, care and provide for me, my sister and all those close to her. I am eternally indebted to her for what she has given us. I will always love her and she will forever be in my heart."
Barnes had a long relationship with the former government minister Denis MacShane. Their 24-year-old daughter Clare was killed in Australia in 2004.
Mr MacShane said: "Carol bred affection, warmth, political acuteness and humanity wherever she lived and worked."
