Douglas Borough Council has paid tribute to Bee Gee star Robin Gibb who died on Sunday evening.

The Manx born singer was made an Honorary Freeman of the Borough of Douglas, along with his brother, by the Council in 2008.

Councillor David Christian said the Council was deeply saddened to learn of his death and said that the star was a supremely talented artist in his own right.

He added that he was an outstanding ambassador for the Isle of Man and was enormously proud of his Manx roots – making a lasting contribution to popular music and the global profile of the Island.
