Dizzee Rascal and Wetherspoons make plea for public help finding Britain's oldest DJ

Britain's oldest Disc Jockey, Bristol's DJ Derek has been missing for three weeks now and both Wetherspoons and Dizzee Rascal have now issued a public plea to find him.

Derek Serpell-Morris appeared in Rascal's video for 'Dirtee Disco'.

Dizzee Rascal, joined the likes of Portishead's Geoff Barrow by voicing concerns. His tweet read: "Please help find the Legend DJ Derek I met him on set of my Dirtee Disco video, really nice guy I hope he's ok."

The DJ's niece told BBC News: "I've left numerous messages for him and he hasn't got back - if he goes away he always lets me know. His friends have been in touch to say he hasn't been in contact. We're all extremely worried."

The police confirmed that his bank account has not been used since the beginning of July.

After four decades establishing himself as an iconic figure in Bristol, playing slots at Glastonbury and a slew of iconic festivals, DJ Derek retired in 2013 after receving the Lord Mayor's medal for his "outstanding" contribution to the music scene in the city.

We hope that he's well and found soon.
