The Queen’s dedication and contributions to the service of the country for a historic 70 years was unfailing, and will be remembered by all.
"As a mark of respect, flags on all council buildings will now be flown at half-mast during the mourning period, but will be raised briefly during this time to celebrate the proclamation of the new King.
"To allow people to pay their respects a book of condolence will be opened at our offices at Blackdown House, in Honiton from tomorrow (Friday, September 9) at 9am and at other locations across the district, details of these can be found on our website.
"If residents would like to show their respects to Her Majesty the Queen, flowers can be left at the following locations:
