The leader of Nottingham City Council announced that Wollaton Hall and the Council House will be lit in honour.
Cllr Mellen, leader of Nottingham City Council said:
‘Tonight we will light the Council House and Wollaton Hall purple as a mark of respect for George Floyd whose death at the hands of American police has rightly ignited anger across the world and to symbolise our solidarity against all forms of racism, hate and prejudice wherever they occur.
‘We know that Nottingham is a place where people from different backgrounds get along well together but we know that racism and prejudice are not just issues in America, they are issues in our country as well.
‘Tonight, a number of Nottingham City councillors will stand together outside the Council House and stand against all forms of prejudice.’
