Mourners carry the coffin of Jim Brown

A long-serving Northern Ireland councillor has been laid to rest.

James 'Jim' Brown, who was in his late 60s, died earlier this week. He had served for four decades in local government.

He was laid to rest at Victoria Cemetery in Carrickfergus yesterday.

Friends and colleagues of Mr Brown joined his grieving widow Esther and daughters and wider family at their home in the east Antrim town for the funeral service.

Mr Brown was a well-known figure in Carrick, having sat on the council there as a member of the Ulster Unionist Party and latterly as an independent.

He served twice as Mayor of Carrickfergus Borough Council before it merged to become Mid and East Antrim after the revamp of local government.
