Oscar-winning British film director Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90, his son has said.

Lord Attenborough was one of Britain's leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director.

In a career that spanned six decades, he appeared in films including Brighton Rock, World War Two prisoner of war thriller The Great Escape and later in dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic Park.

As a director he was perhaps best known for Gandhi, which won him two Oscars

A great man. He leaves me with very good memories and no doubt many others.

R.I.P Sir Richard Attenborough.

I am not religious, but this does not make me anti religion.

RIP Sir!

Although not mentioned as much as some of his other work I would recommend watching Ten Rillington Place and Brighton Rock to see what a great actor he was

Too bad.  Rest in peace Sir Richard.  90 is a nice long life, but 300 would probably be better.
