Profile

When Jack Dyson died in Oldham, his home town, on November 22, 2000, aged 66, a hospital spokeswoman had to ask for information about his relatives. A friend explained the absence of order in his life: "He was a happy-go-lucky sort of a lad who always seemed to be on his uppers. He just enjoyed being a player."
