The Milnrow Band has announced that John Doyle has stepped down from his role as Musical Director with immediate effect.

A work promotion has added additional demands on his professional time and family life, with John wishing to enable himself to spend time with them with this break from banding.

He told 4BR: "I've thoroughly enjoyed the past two years with Milnrow and feel that the band is very special indeed.

I really hope we can work together again in the future as they fully understand why I have had to make this really difficult decision. I really do wish the band well in the future."
