Staff and councillors in North Somerset have expressed extreme shock and sorrow at the murder of Jill Dando.

'Jill Dando made an enormous contribution to Weston-super-Mare through her TV and charity work. The town is mourning a special person and she will be greatly missed by everyone. It is an enormous tragedy and our thoughts are with her family and friends,' said chief executive Paul May. 'She grew up here, went to school here and used to report council meetings in the 70's when she worked for the local paper. She has done so much to promote the town as a resort and recently helped top out a new school in Weston. Everyone who met her knew what a special person she was.'
