Invercargill Mayor Nobby Clark is recovering in Dunedin Hospital’s intensive care unit following double bypass heart surgery. 

Clark was admitted to hospital after a minor heart attack two days after Christmas and underwent surgery yesterday. 

Deputy mayor Tom Campbell said Clark, who was originally scheduled to have a quadruple bypass, would likely remain in ICU for at least 24 hours. 

“I am pleased to hear surgery went well, and myself and all the councillors wish Nobby a speedy recovery.” 

His recovery was likely to take a couple of months, and Campbell would take the reins at council until the mayor was ready to return.
