Professor Paul Younger, from Hebburn, was a passionate champion for the North East and a cousin of Olympic runner Brendan Foster, who also grew up in the South Tyneside town. Prof Younger, who wrote a column in the Chronicle as the “Go Green Doctor” answering people’s questions about sustainability issues, joined Newcastle University as a geology undergraduate and later became its first Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Engagement.
