The former deputy chairman of Sheffield Hallam Conservatives has been paying tribute to Sir Irvine Patnick who has died aged 83.
There had been calls for him to be stripped of his knighthood since his role as the source The Sun's coverage of the disaster was made clear by the Hillsborough Independent Panel in September.
He will be sadly missed by his brothers and by all his family and friends.
He was a very good councillor in Sheffield and he was also a local MP at a time when obviously, when he was on the council and in government, he was very much a minority in this area, being only one of a very small band of Tories. He always did his best for Sheffield, his record over the years shows that, and I'm sure everybody who knew him would say the same.
