It was with immense sadness that many of us watched events unfold yesterday, eventually receiving confirmation that our longest reigning monarch, HM Queen Elizabeth II, had died.
Her unparalleled and unstinting service to our country for the last seventy years has been truly remarkable. Embracing her role with great dignity, she became admired, loved and respected the world over. Yesterday will be recorded as one of the saddest days in history.
Our thoughts are with the Royal Family and all around them, and we offer them our most sincere condolences at this saddest of times.
