Around 40 senior councillors accepted invitations to attend celebrations at St Paul's Cathedral marking the Queen Mother's 100th birthday.

The councillors were drawn from across the political spectrum, ranging from Labour's Ken Bodfish (Brighton & Hove Council), through Kent CC Conservative leader Sandy Bruce-Lockhart, to former Sutton LBC Liberal Democrat leader Lord Graham Tope.

Local Government Association Tory group leader Lord Hanningfield accepted an invitation, as did the former leader of the association's Independents, Ron Gee.

LGA chairman Sir Jeremy Beecham did not attend, while London mayor Ken Livingstone pleaded diary pressure.
