Mick Jones joins famous authors Philip Pullman and Zadie Smith in calling for the library to stay open
Legendary guitarist Mick Jones of The Clash has thrown his support behind the fight to save Kensal Rise Library.
He joined protesters outside the threatened reading room and urged council chiefs to rethink their plans to close it.
Brent Council last year announced plans to closes Kensal Rise Library, opened by American author Mark Twain in 1900, along with five others.
But concerned families and residents have launched an energetic campaign to save it, and are currently drawing up proposals for a rescue package which they are urging councillors to support.
