By on 14/12/2013 in Rebuttals

In response to the story 'A shabby way to honour Nelson Mandela?' in today's (Dec 14) Birmingham Mail: http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/local-news/outcry-over-shabby-mandela-condolences-6404988 See statement below from Birmingham City Council which was not used in full in the article.

A Birmingham City Council spokesman said: “Identical books of condolence were used following previous notable deaths. The book on display is not the final version of the book of condolence as it is always necessary to remove unsuitable or offensive comments from such books before they are properly bound and presented.”
