Alan Rickman's brother is a member of Harborough District Council
Alan Rickman's sad death last week revealed that his brother Michael is a member of Harborough District Council.
The Leicester Mercury has published a short article, quoting his tweets, where he thanks fans for their kind messages and says simply and movingly "I am broken."
Michael Rickman is the Conservative member for the Nevill ward, which includes the villages around Hallaton and Medbourne.
It is named after Nevill Holt, which most literary theorists now believe to be the inspiration for Bonkers Hall.
Back in the 1980s the SDP's only county councillor in Leicestershire was the brother of the film director Stephen Frears.
