He gave a talk at the town's Riverside Library to express his opposition to plans by Nottingham City Council to close three libraries, including the one in neighbouring Basford.

Henry stressed that libraries were important focal points for local communities and he added that every book enabled the reader to immerse himself in a world of knowledge and imagination.

The council claims that reduced use of the three libraries mean that it is no longer a viable proposition to keep them open from a financial point of view.
