Cllr Aldred represented Great Yarmouth on Norfolk County Council since 2013. He had been ill for 18 months but continued to work for the local community until he became bed-ridden.
The leader of the UKIP group on Norfolk County Council, Toby Coke, said:
He will be sorely missed by all members, especially in the Ukip group. From my point of view I’m happy to say he survived long enough to see Brexit.
