Description:London Eric Tovey, who has died aged 87, was a British-born circus entertainer who found fame in America as Lord Littlebrook, one of the biggest stars of midget wrestling. During its heyday in the s and s, as pro wrestling matches began to be screened nationally on television, competitors of smaller stature could often be seen performing alongside their average-sized counterparts. Though these bouts were often considered a prelude to the main event — and would later adopt an overtly comic tone, more circus act than combat — encounters could be brutally demanding. As Lord Littlebrook, clad in a pinstripe jacket and with his hair oiled back, Tovey was both a talented showman and a powerful athlete. As a working-class Londoner, he was more irritated by his own stage name, which had been bestowed upon him by promoters looking to play upon American stereotypes of the English aristocracy. His wrestling school at St Joseph, Missouri, boasted one of the only gyms in the country specifically built for wrestlers who were less than five feet tall.
