Profile

A rare and precious twinship has been severed by the death of Eric Bedser at the age of 87. "Our absolute and complete affinity is hard to explain," said his illustrious brother Sir Alec, the younger of the pair. "But it is true and very real to us - so much so that as long as I can remember we have never been happy apart."
