    Mark Cardwell

    The former deputy leader of Birmingham City Council has died after a short illness.

    Andy Howell

    Andy Howell was a former Labour councillor for Moseley and was deputy leader of the council between 1999 and 2003.

    His wife Kate Foley said he was "Birmingham to his core" but had a range of other passions including "the great outdoors" as well as arts and charity work.

    The current leader of the council, Ian Ward, said he was "shocked and saddened" to hear of Mr Howell's death, remembering him as "a good Labour man who was committed to the people of Birmingham".

    Tributes also flooded in from fellow councillors and the city's MPs.
