In January Tessa brought her fellow peers to tears and received the first ever standing ovation in the House of Lords as she told of her diagnosis and fight to improve care.

Last month the Labour peer made an emotional return to the House of Commons to hear MPs across the political divide praise the 'bravery' and courage of her battle against cancer.

A popular figure in Parliament, Lady Jowell played a major role in securing the 2012 Olympics for London when she served as culture secretary.

Lady Jowell was diagnosed with a gliobastoma multiforme brain tumour in May last year.

She suffered a haemorrhage on Friday, and had been in a coma until her death on Saturday, a spokesman for the family said.

Most plagiarists, like the drone, have neither taste to select, industry to acquire, nor skill to improve, but impudently pilfer the honey ready prepared, from the hive......

Awful, that horrible disease aged her twenty years but she kept fighting & campaigning to the bitter end
