The Mayor of Grantham, Councillor Dean Ward, is in hospital after suffering a stroke.

He said: "Wasn't expecting this. Massive stroke. Blood clot on the brain. They sorted it quick so no long-term side effects. They gave the clogged up arteries a good clean and fitted a stent. I should be out soon."

Coun Ward became Mayor of Grantham in September last year. The Mayor-making ceremony was postponed from May because of Covid and it was decided Coun Ward would be mayor for 20 months rather than the usual 12.
