A notice issued by Burntwood Town Council confirmed his departure, saying that an election would be held for the vacancy if requested in writing by ten electors from the Chasetown ward.

A spokesperson for Burntwood Town Council confirmed that if an election wasn’t triggered then the seat would be filled by a preferred candidate decided by the full council.

Cllr Willis-Croft was one of six Labour councillors on the 22-strong Conservative-controlled town council.

Meanwhile, members of the Labour party paid tribute to the outgoing councillor.

Cllr Sue Woodward said: “He has been an enthusiastic town councillor, going the extra mile by attending advice surgeries or Cabinet meetings at Lichfield District Council.

“I wish him well in the future.”
