Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, the former Catholic archbishop of Westminster, has died at the age of 85, a church spokesman has said.

He became leader of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales in 2000, and was appointed as a cardinal by Pope John Paul II the following year. He retired in 2009.

A message sent from his successor, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, to bishops in England and Wales on Friday said: “I am writing to let you know the sad news that Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor died peacefully this afternoon, surrounded by his family and friends.”

Nichols asked bishops to pray for his soul, and said details of funeral rites would be circulated as soon as possible.
