Tributes are being paid to Bradford councillor Michael Kelly, who has died aged 70.

Cour Kelly, who lived in Addingham, represented the Craven ward on Bradford Council for a past decade.

He is best known for being the portfolio holder for Children’s Services and Education from 2009 to 2010.

Despite battling a long illness Coun Kelly continued as a councillor until his death.

His close friend and fellow councillor, Coun Andrew Mallinson, said: “Michael really enjoyed his role as Executive Member of Children’s Services. He was always very calm and dedicated and did his best to make sense of a very difficult job.”

Keighley MP Kris Hopkins said: “During my period as leader of Bradford Council, I had the privilege of appointing Mike to the position of Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services. It was a role he fulfilled with great distinction.”
