Paul Marshall, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “I was so very sad to hear of the death of Dame Vera Lynn earlier today. In these difficult times our thoughts have often looked to Dame Vera Lynn’s spirit of community and togetherness.
“This is shown in her charitable work and in particular the Dame Vera Lynn Charity, based in West Sussex, supporting families with children suffering from cerebral palsy.
“I know her spirit will live on and I pass my condolences on to her family and all who knew and loved her.”
