Archant

As tributes flow in for the late actor Roger Lloyd-Pack, for many in his home town of Kentish Town he will be remembered as a passionate local campaigner.

The star, who played Trigger in Only Fools and Horses, supported several local campaigns, including to save the Whittington Hospital in Highgate, most recently speaking at a rally to stop the sell-off of hospital buildings in March last year.

Whether it was fighting the closure of Highgate Library, giving students at Acland Burghley School in Tufnell Park Shakespearean acting classes or battling against obscene parking charges, Lloyd-Pack was not afraid to stand up for his neighbours.

Check the gallery to see some of his highlights.
