A footballer has announced the death of his wife on Twitter.
Carlisle United player Lee Miller, a former Scotland international, posted a message last night to say his wife, Donna, 29, mother of his two young sons, had died.

The player tweeted: "Thanx everybody 4 ur kind msgs...I've read every1 of them & they mean so much 2 me,my family & Donnas family.. #ripdonna."
A statement posted on Carlisle United's club website, said: "The thoughts of the directors, staff and everyone connected with Carlisle United Football Club are with Lee Miller and his family at the sad news of the passing of his partner Donna.
"The club is sure that everyone will respect the privacy of the family at this very sad time."
