Shot by aerial videographer Colin Aldred on a hot and sunny day, the film shows off the town from above while also highlighting some of our main attractions like the Eric Morecambe Statue and Midland Hotel.

The video, commissioned by Morecambe Business Improvement District (BID), has been viewed around 40,000 times online.

Brendan Hughes, Morecambe BID chairman, said: “This year Morecambe is very busy.

“The completion of the public realm works on the seafront, and Euston Road, combined with the opening of the Bay Gateway, has certainly put us on the map. The video certainly does Morecambe proud and locals certainly have a lot to be proud of. The festivals and events calendar is fuller than ever and this year BID was the major sponsor of the Morecambe Music Festival which was an outstanding success.”
