Councillors will observe a minute’s silence following the death of Sheerness councillor Mark Ellen at tomorrow night’s full council meeting.

Cllr Ellen lived in Sheerness for nearly 40 years, and was first elected to the council in 2005.

Cllr Roger Truelove, leader of the council, said:

“We are coming to terms with the death of one of our most experienced councillors, Mark Ellen, from Sheerness.

“He will be missed by the community on Sheppey and by those who followed him as an outstanding drummer.

“He was a good local councillor, a good bloke and a good dad. He lived life well and will be missed by Swale council.

“Our condolences go to his family and friends.”
