HOW DID SIMON YAXLEY DIE? THE PRESENTER OF BBC RADIO CUMBRIA, SIMON YAXLEY, HAS PASSED AWAY

Simon Yaxley was a reporter, broadcaster, and producer for BBC Cumbria. 

What was the cause of his death?

Simon was born in 1969 and was affectionately referred to as “Yakkers” by Cumbria’s amateur theatrical and pantomime clubs. He performed in many plays in theaters because he adored drama.

Yaxley, who conducted the Lakeland Radio breakfast show, went to Cumbria from Clacton-on-Sea in Essex. He stayed there until Radio Cumbria took it up in 2017 from CN Group.

He was a reserved man, but when he was on the air, he was a fantastic showman with wonderful interaction with the audience. He was a kind man, an amazing workhorse, and simply a great team player who would assist everyone.

How did Simon pass away?

Strange enough, Simon Yaxley was discovered at his Carlisle residence on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 21, 2022, at the age of 53. The reasons for his demise are still unknown.

A spokesman for BBC Radio Cumbria conveyed the shocking news of Simon Yaxley’s departure on Twitter (@BBC_Cumbria on Twitter).

It said : ” The BBC Radio Cumbria presenter Simon Yaxley has died. @RadioYakkers (Simon) was found at his home in Carlisle yesterday afternoon. He was a BBC presenter for the past five years and worked for commercial radio in Cumbria. Our condolences go to his family, friends and listeners.”

Several others who knew Simon closely paid tribute to him over social media.

Simon was also a co-presenter with Andy Milliard at Lakeland Radio.

Andy said:” He was just radio through and through; it was his real passion. He was sad when Lakeland Radio finished in this area and was so chuffed when he got his shot on Radio Cumbria.”

At times like this, it can be challenging to find the perfect words to say. May Simon have peace, solace, and all the love he requires. We offer our deepest sympathies to Simon’s friends, colleagues and loved ones.
