Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid has paid his own personal tribute to Nelson Mandela who died last Thursday (December 5) at the age of 95.

What Mandela meant to my generation
Friday, 6 December, 2013
I was one of the millions who watched a smiling Nelson Mandela walk free in February 1990, having served twenty-seven years in prison.  I still feel goose pimples when I remember it.  That year I turned 21.  The economy was booming, and the Berlin Wall had fallen only three months earlier.
