"Dear friends and supporters,

"It is with deepest regret that I inform you that our father, Brian, passed away this morning.

"As you know he was battling lung cancer, and was having treatment in Germany.

MT @tom_watson: Brian Haw has died - I used to buy him drinks. He had no idea I was a defence minister.

Happy trails Brian Haw. I was lucky enough to meet him once very briefly. Amazing man. I wish I had a 1,000th of his strength and commitment

Appropriate, perhaps, that Brian Haw should die on the day Nato was 'protecting civilians' by killing children in Tripoli
