He said: “Throughout her 70 years on the throne she has been a figurehead and constant source of inspiration, and her legacy of positivity will live on.

"During her 70 years she has been such a wonderful figurehead and what she did for this country country was just wonderful – she’s really shaped the future of our country and she’s given inspiration to the community of Louth.

"She’s been there all my life, and and we will really miss her. We are so lucky in this country to have a Royal Family, and a head of state like her – they set the tone for the whole country.”

Louth Town Council’s meeting relating to the Active Travel Scheme, scheduled to take place on Tuesday (September 13) has been postponed due to period of mourning upon The Queen's death.
