British pop star Dave Dee has died at the age of 65, following a three-year battle with cancer.

The singer continued playing gigs with his band - Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich - until near to the end of his life, record plugger Sean Cooney said.

"He didn't let it get him down. He was defying it," Mr Cooney added.

The group had eight top 10 hits, including a UK number one single in 1968 with The Legend of Xanadu, in which Dee famously cracked a whip.
