Mandy Rice-Davies - one of the women at the centre of the Profumo affair which rocked Harold Macmillan's Tory government in the 1960s - has died.

Miss Rice-Davies - who was known by her married name of Marilyn Foreman - died aged 70 after a short battle with cancer.

Along with Christine Keeler and society osteopath Stephen Ward, she was a key figure in the 1963 sex scandal, which almost brought down the Conservative government of the time.
