Sad news: BBC music education chief dies suddenly at 51

Friends and colleagues are stunned at the sudden death of Katy Jones, from a brain haemmhorage.

Katy was appointed two years ago to head the Ten Pieces project, the BBC national teaching campaign for ten works of classical music. A former investigative journalist who uncovered important truths about the Hillsborough soccer disaster, she commissioned more than 130 programmes for BBC Learning over the past four years.

Our sympathies to her husband, Mike Spencer, and their children.
