Everyone will be shocked and saddened by the violent death of Anne Maguire.
Nowhere is that shock and sadness experienced more than in this metropolitan county of West Yorkshire. The school at which Mrs Maguire taught is well known in Leeds and most of us here come into contact with persons who have studied there or have some other connection with that establishment.
Yesterday I learned of another connection with Mrs Maguire in that one of her children dances as a soloist with the Royal Ballet.
My sympathy to her and indeed all Mrs Maguire's family, friends and direct connections.
