The Mayor of Liverpool's brother who had died from coronavirus has been pictured as tributes were paid to him. This afternoon the tragic news of Bill Anderson's death was announced by the city's mayor, Joe Anderson, on social media.
In a heartfelt post on Twitter, Mayor Anderson, 62, said: "Despite the efforts of all the staff @LivHospitals ICU my brother sadly died at 10.45pm last night. "We want to thank the dedicated staff risking their lives for us. "Thank you all for your messages of love and support. "Let’s stick together and support each other and win this battle." In a double blow, this comes just five weeks after Mayor Anderson lost his other brother Henry, to cancer.
