Talk to Guardian Natalie Morris, who is also a journalist, said it was undeniable that her father inspired others, but never considered herself a role model.

I now know how difficult it can be to be the only non-white face in editorial meetings, but he did that 20 years ago. It couldn’t have been easy, but it’s a testament to his talent and resilience as he broke those barriers and paved the way for a new generation.
