Margaret and Leslie Robson.

Leslie Robson, who has lived in the town centre with his wife Margaret for about 20 years, was an aircraft engineer in the Second World War – working all over the world, particularly in India.

He and Margaret married in 1952 and had two children, Barry and Hilary. They now have four grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

Leslie had a newsagent shop in Bedlington Station for all of his working life. He took over Robson’s Newsagency from his father.

His daughter-in-law, Jill Robson, said: “We hope that if the Covid-19 situation continues to improve and there are no restrictions later this year, Leslie will be able to meet his great-granddaughter, Joni, for the first time.”
