Andrew Sachs, the much-loved actor, was left unable to recognise footage from Fawlty Towers, after a four-year battle with dementia, his son has disclosed.

John Sachs, the son of the comic actor, who passed away last week at the age of 86, said nursing staff had tried to stimulate his father by playing him footage of the cult BBC comedy, to no avail.

He told the Telegraph: "One of the things they would do to help him would be to put on videos. He sadly towards the end didn’t understand what he was putting on. They hoped it would stimulate him but it didn’t work. That was a few months ago."

While the actor passed away last week, his family managed to keep news of his death private until after he was buried, on Thursday.

John Sachs said the family had not announced his father's death, in a bid to ease the suffering of the actor's wife, Melody, and to ensure that the funeral could be "as dignified as possible".
