Tributes were paid to Ballyoran community worker Yvonne Sterritt at Monday night’s meeting of ABC Council.

Councillors across the political spectrum praised Mrs Sterritt, who died on August 2.

SDLP councillor Joe Nelson described her as a “tireless” worker while Lord Mayor Darryn Causby, who visited her at home a few weeks before her death, said she cared “passionately” about her community.

Kenneth Twyble of the UUP said she was a “remarkable person” while Sinn Fein’s Gemma McKenna said her large funeral was testimony to her life.
