A book of condolence for Nelson Mandela has been opened in Plymouth’s Civic Centre.

Members of the public are invited to sign the book in the First Stop reception, which is open between 8.30am and 5pm.

The Council is also flying the South African, Union and St George flags at half-mast outside the Guildhall until Mr Mandela’s funeral.

Council Leader Tudor Evans said: “Nelson Mandela was an inspiration not only to the people of South Africa fighting apartheid but also to people across the world. He has left a lasting legacy. The book of condolence is an opportunity for people in Plymouth to pay tribute to a great man.”
