Statement from Middlesbrough Mayor Ray Mallon regarding the death of Sir Stuart Bell. He said:

“To say that I am shocked to learn of Sir Stuart’s death would be a considerable understatement, and my thoughts are with his wife Margaret and the whole family.

“He has done a great deal for me personally and for the town as a whole, and it is common knowledge that I held him in the highest regard.
