Cardinal Thomas Winning, leader of the Catholics church in Scotland has died suddenly. Reports say the cardinal suffered another heart attack at his home in Newlands, Glasgow. On 8 June Cardinal Winning, who was 76, was admitted to Glasgow's Victoria Infirmary on Friday after a heart attack. He had no prior history of ill health and was released on Friday. On that day a diocesan spokesman said: "He will have a period of recuperation in private and his diary has been cleared until November. He has to take it easy and not receive a lot of visitors." On his release from hospital, the cardinal paid tribute to the staff who had cared for him, saying: "I am immensely grateful to the staff at the Victoria Infirmary who have helped me over the last week. He said: "No words can express my gratitude." He also thanked the hundreds of well-wishers who sent cards, flowers and goodwill messages.
