The Leader of the City of Wolverhampton City Council, Cllr Ian Brookfield, sadly passed away last weekend, after a battle with cancer.

The reaction to the tragic news from across the West Midlands included tributes from Mayor Andy Street, and the chief executive of the City of Wolverhampton Council Tim Johnson.

DIB group chairman and CEO Frank McKenna said:

“I was fortunate enough to meet Ian on several occasions, and he was a truly lovely guy. His passion and vision for Wolves was clear for all to see, and he was a leader who genuinely inspired those who worked alongside him. As a fellow Scouser and Evertonian, it was inevitable that Ian and I would get on. It’s a great shame that I only got to work with him for a relatively short period of time.

“His legacy will be, I’m sure, the delivery of his vision for a regenerated and transformed Wolverhampton. Our thoughts are with Ian’s family and friends at this sad time.”

The Summer Showcase event that DIB was planning to host in association with the City of Wolverhampton Council on Tuesday 11th July has been postponed until the Autumn.
