British actor and film director Richard Attenborough has died at the age of 90.
He died at lunchtime on Sunday, his son told BBC News.
Lord Attenborough was one of Britain's leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director.
In a career which spanned six decades, he appeared in films including Brighton Rock, World War II prisoner of war thriller The Great Escape and later in dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic Park.
As a director he was perhaps best known for Gandhi, which won two Oscars.
Lord Attenborough had been in a nursing home with his wife for a number of years, BBC arts editor Will Gompertz said.
He had been in a wheelchair since falling down stairs six years ago.
