The chairman of Kings Langley Parish Council is set to continue in his role despite receiving treatment for cancer.

Councillor Ron Smith, who has served on the Parish Council since 2011, is currently receiving treatment for a brain tumour.

But Mr Smith reiterated his desire to keep going as chairman of the council at a Kings Langley Parish Council meeting on Tuesday.

He said: "My objective is to keep going with business as usual for as long as possible.

"The reason for putting this on the agenda tonight is that I want to remain as chairman for as long as I possibly can.

"I am going to do my best to continue doing the best I can for as long as possible.

"I wanted to be totally upfront and with all your support, I can carry on and chair this meeting."

After the meeting, Mr Smith told the Watford Observer that it would be the "easy option to give up."
