Bucks County Council security supervisor John Wicks sets County Hall's Union flag at half mast following the death of Nelson Mandela

The Union and Buckinghamshire County flags are today flying at half-mast in Aylesbury, following the death of South African statesman Nelson Mandela.

They will remain at half-mast outside county hall and the crown court until 8pm on Thursday, December 12.

Carl Etholen, chairman of Buckinghamshire County Council said: “Nelson Mandela’s understanding and forgiveness made his fight for peace, justice and freedom even more remarkable.

“He was an inspirational leader not just for his country but also an example for all world leaders to follow.

“I believe in the importance of recognising the passing of such a great statesman by flying the flags at half-mast to mark the county council’s profound respect for all that he did. He will be sadly missed by millions of us.”
