Message of condolence

Along with the rest of the nation, we are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.

Chair of the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership, Tom Westley DL

“The death of Her Majesty The Queen is a huge shock to everyone in the UK, the Commonwealth and indeed the whole world. It is an extraordinary achievement to have presided with such dignity and grace over 70 years.

"She was an inspiration to all of us and Her devotion to duty was a wonderful example that everyone admired. In return she was much loved by the people of the United Kingdom and by so many people all around the world.

"As we mourn, we must now all come together to support His Majesty King Charles III, and his family, to offer them our loyalty and devotion at this difficult time, exactly as Her Majesty would have wished.”
