FORMER Kentish Times journalist Liz Dickens has died after a long illness.

Liz, 54, trained with Kentish Times Newspapers in the late 1970s before joining the Kent Evening Post.

Her final job in journalism was as features editor with The Medway News. She was also a winner of the Kent Journalist of the Year Award.

Liz went on to work in the press office of Gillingham Council, and the public relations department of the former Rochester-upon-Medway City Council. She also held a senior communications post in the London Fire Service.

In July 2004 it was announced she was to head up the corporate communications department at Kent Police and work closely with Chief Constable of Kent, Mike Fuller.

Kentish Times series group editor, Melody Foreman, who worked with Liz at the Kent Evening Post, said: "Liz was tremendously intelligent, a great writer and fun to work with too. We had a lot of laughs together during our time on the Evening Post features desk. Along with the Kentish Times' editorial team I was very sad to hear of her death and would like to express my condolences to her family and friends."

Liz leaves a husband and three children. Her funeral was held in Medway on Monday.
