Obituary: Labour MP Alan Keen dies aged 73

Alan Keen, Labour MP for Feltham and Heston since 1992, has died at the age of 73. The cause of Keen’s death, which was announced via Labour List on Monday, has not yet been revealed.

Born in London, Alan Keen grew up in the northeast of England. After a brief period in the army, he worked in the fire protection industry before entering politics in 1992 when he was elected as MP for Feltham and Heston. He also spent time as a tactical scout of Middlesborough FC for a few years.

In parliament, Alan Keen served on a number of committees, including Education (1995-1996) and Culture, Media and Sport (1997-1999, 2001 onwards). His wife Ann Keen joined him as an MP in 1997 when she was elected to represent Brentford and Isleworth, although she lost her seat in the 2010 general election.
