I have just heard that Mike Barrett passed away on January 29th. A burial service was held last Thursday.
His death was not alcohol related.
Thanks for passing on the news. As I have mentioned elsewhere to you, in doing a massive cleanout of our computer room I came across some papers related to the Maybrick Diary and Anne and Mike Barrett came to mind.

I saw Mike Barrett last summer he told me had been in poor health and he was of the booze it was the first time I'd seen him in a long time.I think anyone who met him would agree that he was a very colourfull character.
