John Downing, who has died aged 79, was one of Fleet Street’s most respected photographers, with a career that spanned five decades and took him to more than 100 countries on all seven continents. He was chief photographer at the Daily Express in the paper’s heyday, when it sold millions, and his pictures were familiar to many even if his name, usually in small print underneath, was known to few.

Watch this interview with him - absolutely fascinating
