The Worshipful the Mayor of Southend, Cllr Kevin Robinson, says: “We join the rest of the nation in expressing our very great sadness at the announcement yesterday regarding the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

“Her Majesty The Queen was our longest reigning Monarch, and is rightly loved and respected across the world. Our thoughts are with The Royal Family at this deeply sad time.

“Flags across our civic buildings have been flying at half-mast and a letter of condolence has been sent to the Queen’s personal secretary expressing our sympathies."
