It is with sadness that I have to report that Davy Guy, President of the Durham Miners Assocation of the North East Area of the NUM, passed away last night at the age of 66 after a long battle against cancer.

Davy Guy commanded the utmost respect of the NUM membership due to his commitment to fight on behalf of the miners, their families and communities over the many years he has been actively involved in the NUM.

The NUM wishes to express its condolences to his widow Christine and his family.

Funeral arrangements will be posted when known.
