County Durham and Darlington Police and Crime Commissioner Joy Allen has joined the nation in expressing her sadness at the passing of Her Majesty The Queen.

In a statement, Commissioner Allen said: “It is with great sorrow we lose such a remarkable and inspiring leader who has steered Britain and the Commonwealth through an extraordinary era of political, cultural, technological and economic change.

“As Britain’s longest-serving ruler, Queen Elizabeth has served her country selflessly and passionately over seven decades, providing an anchor through good and troubled times. Even recently, during the pandemic, her words of comfort and reassurance helped to stabilise a nation facing unprecedented crisis.

“She was a woman of exceptional courage and fortitude, who cared deeply for the people and causes she championed, embracing all walks of life. That compassion and sincerity shone through her many years of public service, and I am delighted that the nation had the opportunity of marking her many wonderful achievements during the Platinum Jubilee festivities this summer.

“In her passing, we remember the dignity, commitment and loyalty she always invested in her work – qualities that will continue to glue our communities together through the work of her children and grandchildren in the future.

“We will always be grateful for the sacrifices she made for her people. Her devotion to duty is beyond comparison and we will honour her memory long after this moment.

I would like to express my deepest thoughts andsympathies to family during this dreadfully difficult time.”
