    Disgraced former celebrity publicist Max Clifford has died in hospital, aged 74, after collapsing in prison.

    Clifford had had a heart attack and was taken to hospital last week after collapsing in his cell at Littlehey Prison in Cambridgeshire.

    He had been serving an eight-year sentence for historical sex offences.

    The Ministry of Justice said: "As with all deaths in custody, there will be an investigation by the independent Prisons and Probation Ombudsman."

    A spokeswoman added: "Our condolences are with Mr Clifford's family at this difficult time."

    I've heard the argument that historical sex abuse cases are unfair on the accused because they apply today's standards of what is and is not acceptable to that which existed years ago when men taking advantage of women was considered to be normal. Max Clifford's total lack of remorse for his crimes and the impact they had on his victims right up to his death, show the importance of pursuing perpetrators of these crimes no matter how much time has elapsed.
