Keighley’s deputy mayor has announced his resignation, saying he feels he does not have anything more to give Keighley Town Council.
Lionel Lockley had been a town councillor for eight years, but was formally made deputy mayor in May.
He said he was saddened to be leaving the council, adding that his departure was for “personal reasons”.
Town clerk Miggy Bailey said: “We are disappointed, but we do understand, wish Lionel well and thank him for all the work he has done.”
Mr Lockley had represented the council’s Bracken Bank & Ingrow ward. He was born and brought up in Keighley and joined the Army when he was 16, serving with the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment for six years.
