Jimi Heselden: Top honour for Leeds's own Segway tycoon

Leeds businessman and philanthropist Jimi Heselden - who died last year in an accident near his home - will be honoured tomorrow when his name is added to the Freemen of the City.

Jimi's family will be presented with a scroll at a special council meeting to mark his inclusion on the Civic Hall list of those granted the honour.

The former Hesco Bastion chairman will be the first posthumous recipient.
