Vic Elvin dies
I've just had a call from the EEN to say that Mile Cross Councillor Vic Elvin has passed away. Vic was a true community man, dedicated to making Mile Cross a better place to live. His shock election win - and subsequently holding the seat against a big swing to Labour - made him quite an electoral force! I know Labour were terrified of him and a good job too! He may not have done much jumping up and down in the Chamber but he worked long and hard for the community he represented and the council could do with more people like Vic Elvin.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.
