Actor who made West End debut in 1960 and had lengthy television career suffers heart attack at Surrey allotment

Trevor Bannister, who played the role of ladies' man Mr Lucas in the department store comedy Are You Being Served? has died at the age of 76.

He suffered a heart attack on Thursday at his allotment in Thames Ditton, Surrey, his brother John told the BBC.

"He was a good lad, we were all very fond of him," he said, adding that the actor had been doing some repair work on his shed when he became ill.

Bannister had a lengthy career including appearances in the long-running police drama Z Cars, and more recently a stint in Last of the Summer Wine.

He also made regular appearances in the theatre and in pantomime.

In 2009, he gave a reading at the funeral of his co-star Wendy Richard, who played Miss Brahms in Are You Being Served? »
