Former Havering councillor dies in Malta

Tribute has been paid to a “community-minded” former Conservative Havering councillor who has passed away.

Captain Gordon Scott-Morris, who represented the former Rise Park ward from 2000-2002, died in early December.

He was 80-years-old and had gained his title from his time in the merchant navy.

Married with two children and three grandchildren, he was living in Malta at the time of his death.

His funeral will be held at Upminster Crematorium on Tuesday 20 December at 12pm followed by a private gathering at Marygreen Manor Hotel in Brentwood.
