Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore today (Thursday 8 September) paid tribute to Her Majesty The Queen.

He said:

The announcement of the death of Her Majesty The Queen is received with great sadness. All of us in Suffolk are united in grief at the passing of our nations’ longest ever serving monarch.

The Queen’s long reign is an extraordinary example of unstinting commitment and dedication, particularly during times of national and international difficulties.

Her work across the United Kingdom, The Commonwealth and many other nations of the world is second to none and has been a powerful force for the greater good of us all.

We send our thoughts and prayers to the whole Royal Family. She will be sorely missed, and we are all eternally grateful for all she has accomplished.
