THE THURROCK community was in mourning today as the death was announced of one of its favourite sons.
Liam Coffey, aged 38, died last night after a long battle with cancer.
There will be tributes and a full obituary to come for the very popular director of Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions.
Liam was a wonderful, engaging, charismatic man who took out the copyright on straight talking.
Some of his finest moments were in holding the council to account as organisations struggled for funding or had an issue which he felt they were, how can we say, dragging their feet.
