Regretfully George's Mum didn't survive her illness and passed away this weekend. Obviously our thoughts, prayers and sympathies are with George and his family at this tragic time.
It's fine to post comments here in reply to this blog but we would be grateful if you did not message George directly. He and his family are shocked by their Mum's death and are in mourning.
George won't be twittering or blogging or answering any mail for a while understandably so this is the right place to send him your thoughts and prayers.
