Former Met chief Carol Hudson dies

  • Comment

Carole Hudson, who was chief executive of St Helens MBC for more than 23 years, has died aged 63.

A spokesperson for the council today confirmed Ms Hudson, who was the most senior officer at St Helens between 1991 and 2015, died in her sleep at the weekend while on holiday in America.

Council leader Derek Long (Lab) said: “We all feel Carole’s loss deeply. She was a fine servant of the borough. She will be remembered, not only for making St Helens a better place, but also for her private acts of kindness to our staff and residents.”

According to local reports, Ms Hudson became only the second woman in the country to be appointed as a council chief executive when she was promoted from assistant chief executive for finance at St Helens in 1991. She was later given a CBE in 2007 for services to local government.
