Bristol will be paying tribute to veteran MP Tony Benn this evening.

Mr Benn, who died in March, was Labour MP for Bristol South East for more than 30 years. During his time in the city, he fought against racism and campaigned for Concorde to be built at Filton. Members of the public, trade unionists and politicians will be at the May Day memorial at the New Room.
