Marcus pays tribute to Paddy Ashdown

Marcus paid tribute to Paddy Ashdown today at a memorial service in St Johns Church, Yeovil.

'Lord Ashdown served his country with distinction in the Forces and later in public life, showing the same commitment and vigour in both. I didn't agree with all of his political views but I know that he loved Somerset and worked tirelessly for the area. He will be remembered here and across the country with fondness and a great deal of respect.'
