Sir Ken Morrison, one of Britain's most successful retailers, has died aged 85.
For more than half a century he was in charge of supermarket chain Morrisons. Under his leadership it grew from one small store in Bradford to a national chain.
Sir Ken first got involved aged nine when he helped out on his father's market stall. By 1956 he was chairman and managing director with the business opening its first town centre shop in Bradford in 1958 and its first supermarket in 1961. Today the business turns over billions and has more than 560 stores.
The straight talking Yorkshireman was known for his forthright views and lots of people have been sharing his quotes. Here are our favourites.

RIP Sir Ken Morrison, who said of management consultants: "If you don't know how to run your own business, it's time to give up, isn't it?"
