Cllr Mark Hawthorne responds to the killing of George Floyd


Cllr Mark Hawthorne, Leader of Gloucestershire County Council, said: “I was really shocked by the killing of George Floyd. That was a horrific video and something I sincerely hope I never see again. I totally understand why people are outraged by it and entirely support their right to peaceful protest.

“I’d ask people to be mindful of Covid-19 when they do; please be careful and don’t risk spreading the infection. We want to see a fully inclusive society and have made it one of our key ambitions for the county; making sure economic and social opportunities and benefits are felt by everyone in Gloucestershire.”
