DEPUTY PM Nick Clegg today called for Jess Ennis to be awarded freedom of the City.
He said: “As a Sheffield MP, seeing local girl Jess win gold has been the highlight of the Olympics so far. Her truly inspirational victory has done our country and Sheffield proud.
“I can’t think of any better way to mark this outstanding achievement than granting Jess freedom of the City.”
Former Sheffield Council leader Paul Scriven has started a Twitter campaign to get Tudor Square renamed Ennis Square.
He said: “As a lasting tribute we need to name an important city centre area that is used and loved by the people of Sheffield not somewhere out of the city centre.”
