LETTER: MP was a local man

Sid Pepper (November 22 letter) says Dennis (Don) Concannon was not a local man.

I don’t know where Dennis was born but as a young man in the early 1950s he worked locally as a National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) official and played centre attack for Mansfield Basketball Club.

He was also a Quarry Lane End supporter of the Stags.

That qualifies him as local for me.
