Comment from the Leader of Council as Leeds United legend passes away

Leader of Leeds City Council Councillor Judith Blake said:

“I am absolutely heartbroken to hear the tragic news that Norman has passed away.  He was a legend on the pitch and an absolute gentleman off it. It was a true honour to see him awarded the Freedom of the City with his teammates last December.  Along with thousands of people in Leeds and beyond Norman Hunter was a hero of mine and I have treasured memories of watching him play as a child. Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences are with his family, friends, former teammates and everyone connected with Leeds United. This is a very sad day for the city of Leeds.”
