Andy Sawford, former MP for Corby, has paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II following her death

“The Queen has been a great figure of our time and will be remembered for all time after an incredible long life and involvement in making so much history. In her 96 years, so much has changed in the world, including the end of the British Empire, and a new relationship between the monarchy and democracy. The Queen has performed her role as a constitutional monarch perfectly.

“Over the coming days I think we will see an incredible response from around the world as people pay their respects. Inevitably, people will remember times when they saw the Queen and I’ll reflect on her visit to Corby and other occasions, including most memorably at the re-opening of St Pancras. Condolences to her family and to everyone, and there will be many, who feel they have lost someone special.”
