"Along with the whole of our country, I am utterly heartbroken by the news of the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. Tim Farron (By JackWilfred (Tim Farron 02, July 2016.jpg) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)], via Wikimedia Commons)

"Her Majesty was much loved by all of us in Cumbria.

"For all of us, the Queen has been a constant fixture of our entire lives. But she's also been a constant example of service, faithfulness and humility.

"The landmarks of her reign have been the landmarks of our lives. For me as a child celebrating her silver jubilee, as a new father celebrating her golden jubilee and to be privileged enough as an MP to have met her and experienced her kindness and humour.

"Her Majesty was also a devoted and loving mother and grandmother, and my thoughts and prayers tonight will be with her family at this deeply sad time."
