Lord Patrick Lichfield, the photographer whose images in the 1960s epitomised the era, has died.

The 66-year-old died in the early hours of this morning in hospital after suffering a stroke yesterday; members of his family were at his bedside.

Born Thomas Patrick John Anson in 1939, Lichfield was the first cousin once-removed of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and a photographer of the Royal Family.

His celebrity subjects included Michael Caine, Mick and Bianca Jagger, Pele, Roman Polanski, Joanna Lumley, Marsha Hunt and Irish actor Colin Farrell.
