Longstanding campaigner against racism and anti-Semitism, Liane Segal, 86, dubbed an ‘ inspirational figure’ by outgoing mayor. This week Segal said she was “honoured” to be Mayoress, adding: “Lewisham is stronger because of our history in welcoming residents from all corners of the world. I hope that by sharing my story, others will see it is as important as ever to provide sanctuary for people fleeing persecution.”
