    The director of such films as Top Gun and brother of Ridley Scott, Tony Scott has commited suicide by jumping off a bridge. He was 68. No doubt more details will emerge as the day goes on.

    Bad time to be called Scott - Scott McKenzie, singer of San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair) also dies at the weekend.

    Oops spotted your second posting....

    I'm glad that Scott is not a component of my name else I'd be looking over my shoulder for the grim reaper.

    Tony Scott was a close, personal friend of mine, well I did some gardening work in Wimbledon for him in about 1985-ish. And I met an Andrex dog too.

    Well I s'pose i could watch True Romance as a tribute.

    I could watch Top Gun but I'd probably throw myself off a bridge too
