St Trinian's cartoonist Ronald Searle has died aged 91, his family said today.

Searle, whose drawings of the anarchic girls' school inspired a series of films, died at home in France.



A family statement said: "Ronald William Fordham Searle, born 3 March 1920, passed away peacefully in his sleep with his children, Kate and John, and his grandson, Daniel, beside him on 30 December 2011 in Draguignan, France, after a short illness.



"He requested a private cremation with no fuss and no flowers."
