A newly-opened Morecambe pub has welcomed a famous customer – the heavyweight champion of the world.

Tyson Fury popped in to The Exchange for a quiet drink on Wednesday night.

Former editor of The Visitor, Glen Cooper, was one of those who grabbed a photo with the 6ft 9in boxer.

“He was very polite and accommodating,” said Glen.

The new pub, formerly the Imperial, opened last Friday.

Another Morecambe-based sports star, world class darts player Dave Chisnall, also visited The Exchange in its first week.

‘Chizzy’ played darts in the West End pub on Tuesday ahead of his Sky Sports TV clash with Adrian Lewis in the Premier League tonight.
