The SPR reports the sad news of the death of the veteran parapsychologist Guy Lyon Playfair. He had quite a wide range of interests, but was probably best known as an investigator of the Enfield poltergeist case in the 1970s:

I enjoy reading GLP. Always came across to me as genuine and rational. A long and interesting life and someone who actually did psychical research instead of just talking about it.
