CAMBRIDGE City Council has expressed sadness at the death of Sir Michael Marshall and the flag is flying at half-mast over the Guildhall as a mark of respect.
Cllr Gerri Bird, Mayor of Cambridge, said: “Sir Michael will be greatly missed by so many people in Cambridge.
“As a business leader he was a major figure in our city. He worked to support young people to develop their skills and talents and he was an active supporter of charities including Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust.
“I would like to offer the city council’s sincere condolences to Sir Michael’s family and friends at this sad time.”
