Keith Vaz in Leicester
MP delighted: Keith Vaz has been celebrating the new Labour control on the council with an EDM, signed by an impressive 36 MPs outlining the 'disastrous' work of the Lib Dems in Leicester. Ross Wilmott returns as leader with Mary Draycott as deputy.
A last goodbye to 'remarkable man': the funeral of the former Lord Mayor, Councillor Ramnik Kavia was held this week.
Residents welcome nursery: Some good news for Hamilton with the opening of Hamilton Hilltop Nursery School, which Keith Vaz attended.
Mr Vaz said: "This nursery will be a great asset to Hamilton. Local residents with children will now have the opportunity find work or training and at the same time benefit from childcare provisions in their local area.
"I want the council and local developers to continue with their successful efforts to equip Hamilton with many more facilities."
Eastender at switch on in memory of Merlyn: The winter holiday lights were switched on by a soap 'star' in memory of Merlyn Vaz and a school has put up a tree in tribute, with soundbites from Vaz and the Lord Mayor, Piara Singh Clair.
