It was typical of Geoff’s energy and resilience that, until the very end, he was still campaigning for the charity Cure Leukaemia. He was diagnosed with the disease four years ago.
ITN CEO Deborah Turness said Geoff “led from the front, with guts and raw energy. His enthusiasm was limitless because he just loved his job.
“He came to work every day with a big smile on his face. He was a force of nature and loved nothing more than to be at the heart of the barely controlled chaos of a breaking news story. He was fizzing with ideas, a human dynamo always ready for action.”
