Mr Mead was a member of North Somerset Council and Weston Town Council and the latter held a minute’s silence at its meeting on Monday.

Town clerk Malcolm Nicholson said: “Cllr Mead had been an independent member of the town council since 2013.

“He was admired for his sense of humour, and for always speaking his mind.

“He is a great loss to the town council and will be sadly missed.

“Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.”
