Philip Chevron, of Irish punk band The Radiators From Space and, for over two decades (in two stints), guitarist with The Pogues, has died aged 56.

Chevron was first diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in 2007, but recovered from the disease in 2009. However, it was announced that the cancer had returned back in May this year.

In a statement, The Pogues confirmed Chevron’s passing, saying: “After a long illness Philip passed away peacefully this morning. We all send our sincere condolences to his family”.
