    Ex-SAS soldier John McAleese, who led the raid that ended the 1980 siege at Iran's embassy in London, has died.

    Mr McAleese, who was in his early 60s, died on Friday in Thessaloniki, Greece, the Foreign Office said.

    The former sergeant led the team which blew out the building's windows and rescued 24 hostages from gunmen.
