Louise Clarke, one of the founding members of Top Of The Pops dance troupe Pan's People, has died at the age of 63.

Ms Clarke, who formed the group with Flick Colby, Babs Lord, Ruth Pearson, Dee Dee Wilde and Andi Rutherford in 1966, died from heart failure on Saturday.

She is the second member of the group to pass away following the death of Ms Colby at 65 in May last year.

The troupe provided visual entertainment when an artist could not appear on the BBC chart show.
