Basil Brush has tweeted to say how proud he was to pay tribute to his 'Mr Derek', Derek Fowlds, star of Heartbeat, which was set in Goathland.

Derek played Oscar Blaketon in the series, which ran from 1992 till 2010, with 372 episodes.

He died on January 17th, at the age of 82, from complications following pneumonia.

Derek appeared alongside Basil in 'The Basil Brush Show' from 1969 to 1973.

Basil took to social media on hearing his friend had passed away.

But, yesterday, he tweeted again to say he'd paid tribute to Derek at his funeral.
