Statement from Hull City Council Leader Stephen Brady following the death of Prince Philip

On behalf of Hull City Council and the people of the city, we would like to express our great sorrow at the news of the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Duke dedicated his life to public service and carried out his duties across the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world with distinction. We were honoured to welcome him to the city most recently, along with Her Majesty the Queen, in March 2009 for the opening of the Hull Paragon Interchange.

The Duke had strong ties to Hull Trinity House and often enjoyed attending the Hull Trinity House Christmas Luncheon. His last attendance was in December 2008 along with the Honorary Alderman Elaine Garland, the Lord Mayor at the time.

We would like to express our deepest sympathies to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family.
