Mr Hardy, of Rose Walk, Wisbech, had been trading in the health food business in Wisbech for more than 40 years through his shop in Hill Street, Brian Hardy Speciality Foods.

He had also been a Fenland District Councillor from May 1999 until the elections earlier this year when he decided not to seek re-election because of ill health. He had also been a town councillor in 1995.

Mr Hardy remained a Cambridgeshire County Councillor until his death. He was elected in 1997 and represented the Leverington area, which became Peckover and Roman Bank division.
