Neath MP Peter Hain has led the tributes to former Cadoxton County Borough Councillor, Valdo Funning who passed away on Wednesday.

Mr Funning had been unwell for some time but speaking after hearing the sad news Mr Hain said, ‘Valdo was a man of the community, a greatly respected and long serving Community Councillor on Blaenhonddan, Neath Borough Councillor and Neath Port Talbot County Borough Councillor.

‘He was a stalwart of the Labour Party, who will be fondly remembered for his dedication to the community, his extensive knowledge and of course his wit. He will be sorely missed.’
