LONDON (AP) -- British actor Roger Lloyd-Pack, best known for playing dim-witted street-sweeper Trigger on the sitcom "Only Fools and Horses," has died at the age of 69.

Agent Maureen Vincent said the actor had pancreatic cancer and died Wednesday at his home in London.

The son of an actor and graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Lloyd-Pack appeared in many films and TV series, including sitcom "The Vicar of Dibley," on which he played farmer Owen Newitt.

But -- like everyone in the cast -- he was indelibly associated with "Only Fools and Horses." The sitcom recounted the get-rich-quick schemes of London market trader Del Boy Trotter, played by David Jason. It ran from 1981 to 1991 and has been voted one of the nation's favorite comedies
