A FUNERAL will take place next week for a long-serving Edinburgh councillor who died in hospital on Sunday.

Ian Berry, who was a Conservative councillor for 30 years, was described by colleagues as “a man for the people”.

A service will take place at St John’s RC Church, Portobello, on Wednesday at 10am.

Mr Berry, who served first on Lothian Regional Council and then as Edinburgh city councillor for Duddingston, is survived by his wife, Sylvia, and three daughters.
