THE LERWICK Town Hall flag is flying at half-mast today (Monday) as a mark of respect for former councillor Jim Henry, whose funeral took place earlier.

Henry was a Lerwick South councillor for two terms between 2003 and 2012, and he sat on several committees, including environment and transport, social services, licensing and the harbour board.

He was also vice-chairman of Shetland Charitable Trust and chairman of Shetland Leasing and Properties (SLAP).

Convener Malcolm Bell said: “Jim was a loyal servant of the council and his constituents for nine years and I am saddened by his passing.

“We send our deepest sympathies to his family.”
