Doctors have given Brian Briscoe the all clear to return to work after making a full recovery from a recent heart scare.

The Local Government Association chief executive fell ill while working for the association at the Conservative spring conference in mid March. He will be seen back in Local Government House for a couple of days next week, and full time from the week of the general election.

Mr Briscoe said: 'I have been overwhelmed and thank everyone for their kind messages of support.

'I feel refreshed and renewed - and eager to take the LGA forward after the election. The first months of the new parliament will be particularly important to local government, whoever the ministers are. It is important the LGA leads from the front and makes a long-term impact, building on the continuous improvement achieved by our member councils to demonstrate that they are best-placed to lead local communities and deliver joined-up quality public services.'
