Shopkeepers were delighted to receive a special visit on Eric Morecambe’s birthday from the ‘great man himself’.

Eric impersonator Bob More popped in to say hello while on walkabout in the town centre to judge a competition to find the best Eric Morecambe-themed shop front.

Town centre businesses dressed their windows to pay tribute to the legendary comedian, who would have been 87 years old on Tuesday.

Eric Morecambe’s chauffeur Mike Fountain was also on the judging panel.

The contest was organised by Lancaster City Council and results will be announced in The Visitor next week.
