Hazel died on Saturday morning following a short illness.

She retired from the City Council in 2012 as Director of Community and Environment . She spent 35 years working for the local authority, joining in 1976 and working up through the ranks. She became Head of Environmental Health Services in 1996 and then a Strategic Director in 2001.  

Council Leader Pete Edwards paid tribute to Hazel. "I am very saddened by this news," he said. "It is sadly ironic that she took early retirement and then became desperately ill. Hazel was a  long serving member of staff and showed great loyalty to the City Council.  I would like to send my condolences to all of her family."

Karime Hassan, Chief Executive and Growth Director, said: "Hazel was an outstanding public servant with an impeccable career at the City Council. It hits us all when something like this happens. Hazel will be sadly missed."
