A public memorial service and concert is being planned for the New Year to celebrate the life and works of pop star Clifford T Ward (right).

The singer/songwriter, who was from Stourport, Worcestershire, and was best known for his top ten hit Gaye, died before Christmas after a long battle against multiple sclerosis.

Stephen Bagust, fan club secretary and friend of the star, said tributes had been pouring in from around the world.

''Clifford's death has touched a lot of people and we think a celebration concert would be a great tribute,'' he said.

''We think a memorial service in the county would be fitting too.

''Clifford loved Worcestershire and it was apt that he died in the county.''
