In response to this news, our Chairman, Councillor Les Cruwys, has issued the following statement:
"On behalf of Mid Devon District Council I would like to express our deepest condolences to the Royal Family following the announcement, by Buckingham Palace, that His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, has died.
"While most of us will never have met him, he touched many lives through his years of dedicated service to our nation. We should remember and reflect upon this service and show our gratitude for the work he carried out so tirelessly and so selflessly.
"As a mark of respect the Union Jack flag at Phoenix House, Tiverton, will be flown at half-mast until the day after the funeral. I am aware that many of our residents will wish to pay their own respects to His Royal Highness. Precise details relating to books of condolence and tributes will be released as soon as details are confirmed nationally and at county level.”
