The County Flag will be flown at half-mast

Following the sad news of the death of former Chief Constable Simon Cole QPM, leader of Leicestershire County Council, Nick Rushton, has issued a tribute.

“I’m terribly shocked and saddened to learn of this awful news. Simon was the youngest ever Chief Constable appointed for Leicestershire and Rutland, as well as the longest serving. "We have lost an outstanding public servant whose mission in life was dedicated to making our communities stronger and safer. Our thoughts and prayers are with his Police colleagues and with his family at this sad time. “I have ordered the County flag to be flown at half-mast as a tribute to the life of Simon Cole QPM."
