A third book of condolence has opened in the ward of the late Leader of the City of Wolverhampton Council, Councillor Ian Brookfield, to enable people to pay their respects.

Councillor Brookfield, who was a ward councillor for Bushbury South and Low Hill, very sadly passed away on Sunday after a brave battle with cancer.

A book of condolence opened at the Civic Centre St Peter's Square, on Tuesday, and another is now available at Low Hill Community Hub, Kempthorne Avenue. Alternatively, people can leave messages online at Book of Condolences for Cllr Ian Brookfield

Councillor Stephen Simkins, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Acting Leader, said: "Councillor Brookfield's passing has touched so many people's lives and we will never forget the massive impact that he had on our city.

"We have received hundreds of tributes and the books of condolence are now open for people to leave messages, which I am sure will prove to be of great comfort to Councillor Brookfield's family and friends at this very sad time."

The City Flag and the Union Flag will continue to fly at half-mast outside the Civic Centre until after Councillor Brookfield’s funeral, details of which will be announced in due course.
