The date of death has been accepted, but not the place or cause. The reason given was "Badly formatted", but no indication of why it was considered that.

The Spanish news site theleader.info says in a couple of different articles that Thorne passed away at Torrevieja hospital. The IMDb biographical data guidelines says "The place of birth should be in the same form as a location in the locations list, with the city (if applicable) and country, plus whatever other subdivisions are appropriate for the country." I assume the same is true for place of death. I therefore submitted as the place of death "Torrevieja, Alicante, Valencian Community, Spain". That's (in order) the city, province, autonomous community and country. Could you let me know how this is badly formatted? Do I need to submit the Spanish language translation instead which I suppose would be "Torrevella, Alacant, Comunidad Valenciana, España" if Wikipedia and Google Translate are giving me the correct spellings?

His Place of Birth has just been declined too (same submission number). I offered a link to an interview he did with the Leicester Mercury where he stated in the first line he was born in Anstey, which is a village northwest of Leicester.
