Thom Yorke's former long term partner Dr Rachel Owen passes away aged 48

Dr Rachel Owen, Thom Yorke's former long term partner has passed away aged 48 after a battle with cancer.

Owen was both an esteemed scholar and artist. She was also with Yorke for 23 years and is the mother of their two children Noah and Agnes.

The statement on the Pembroke College Oxford website - where she was an expert in medieval Italian literature - reads as follows: "It is with great sadness that the College marks the death of Dr Rachel Owen, who was a Retained Lecturer in Italian here at Pembroke."

It added: "Despite her declining health from cancer in the last year, she asked to continue to teach, which she did right until the end of last Michaelmas term. She was 48 years old and leaves behind a son, Noah, and a daughter, Agnes, aged 15 and 12."

Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.
