I learned of Cllr Whitehead's admission into hospital yesterday but was shocked to learn of his sudden death this morning.

Cllr Whitehead has been on the Council a short time but I sat on several committees he sat on and was a keen contributor to those meetings.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends he leaves behind and on behalf of the UKIP Group on the Council.
