Sadness at death of family man

First published in Letters by

I READ with sadness of the death of Charles Longbottom, the former Conservative MP for York (The Press, February 7).

He did a great deal of good in his time in York, working tirelessly to help people, attending meetings and events. He held surgeries so people could come and speak with him to seek help or advice.

He was a family man and after losing the election, he went back to London and continued to do good work there in various causes.
