The Manchester Municipal Corporation, where Sally Porteous served as a Deputy Mayor representing the Jamaica Labour Party before she was appointed to the office of Custos, has confirmed that she has been hospitalised.

The corporation said she took ill while attending a meeting in Mandeville on Thursday. She reportedly suffered a brain aneurysm.

According to a post Monday on a Gofundme page that has been set up on her behalf, she has since undergone an operation. It said the operation went well and Porteous will remain in intensive care for several days.

Porteous also served as Councillor for the Mandeville division in the then Manchester Parish Council.
