NEWPORT rap group Goldie Lookin Chain have paid their own tribute to Newport West MP Paul Flynn, who died on Sunday aged 84.

The song posted on the group's Facebook page hails the Labour stalwart as being "more westside than Tupac" and ends with the chorus "Paul, you were the best, forever representing Newport West."

Other lyrics include: "Across the parties Paul was revered. And it’s just possible he was born with that beard.

"Never afraid to say what was in his head. And he wrote six more books than I've ever read."
