The union is saddened to learn of the untimely death of Simeon Andrews, he was the co-ordinator of the NUJ’s work in parliament for more than 15 years.

Simeon also undertook similar work for several other trade unions, and brought together the Trade Union Co-ordinating Group. In this guise, he created a formidable presence in legislative circles, able to exert significant influence when the occasion demanded.

Simeon, who reported to many of the NUJ’s national executive meetings, combined a knowledgeable determination with considerable diplomatic skills.

Michelle Stanistreet, NUJ general secretary, said:

"Simeon was always a pleasure to deal with and brought an extra dimension to whatever we worked on together. I am deeply shocked to hear of his sudden death and send heartfelt condolences to his family and colleagues."
