image for Hampstead luvvies mourn death of 'lovable local nutter' Michael Foot
Foot looked a bit like this but his hair was longer and wilder, plus his eyes were pretty haunted-looking

London - (RIP Mess): The verdant slopes of Hampstead's South End Road are bereft today of much-loved local wag Michael Foot who died this morning at home aged 96.

The former Labour Party leader was a daily feature tottering along the Heathan streets on his usual sojourn to the Fleet Road delicatessen where he bought parmigiano regiano, truffle oil, linguine verde and vintage Barolo.

Villagers always had a soft spot for the lovable nonagerian nutter who was often seen muttering things like "Absolutely disgraceful" and "Bloody George Bush!" as he passed the NW3 news-stands along South End Green during the Iraq War.

During a street-party for the Queen's Golden Jubilee Foot was spotted sunning himself by Hampstead's Men's Pond, ruminating furiously at the acres of male nudity that has invaded the iconic North London beauty spot.

Former neighbor Dame Daphne Hollyhock said today she would miss Michael Foot "quite dreadfully" after nearly running him over in her clapped-out 1947 Bentley Silver Wraith last year.

The ex-Labour leader leaves behind a son, investigative journalist Paul Foot, who looks a lot more like his Mum Jill Cragie than his Pa.
