Rachel Maclean, MP for Redditch, said:

“I’m deeply saddened by the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore.

“The word hero gets used a lot nowadays, but Captain Moore embodies the very definition of the word.

“Last year he captured the hearts and minds of the nation by raising £33 million for the NHS. He inspired a whole country and his family should be proud of the legacy he has left behind.

“I’m sure I speak for the whole of Redditch when I say our thoughts and prayers are with Captain Moore’s family at this difficult time.

“Rest in peace Captain Moore.”
