Ludgvan councillor resigns due to ill health
Ill health has forced a west Cornwall councillor to step down from her position.
Irene Bailey, representative for Ludgvan on the unitary authority said her health has left her unable to carry out her duties.
She decided to resign because she said she was not able to help her constituents while she concentrates on recovering.
"I am not saying I am not going to get better just that it is going to be a long haul," she said.

A new councillor for the ward will be elected next May at the full council elections.
There will be no by election because her resignation, on November 10, came within six months of the upcoming ballot.
A spokeswoman for Cornwall Council said that the constituents of Ludgvan will be supported by the councillors from the neighbouring constituencies – Sue Nicholas (Marazion) and Sue Pass (Penzance Promenade) – in the interim.
