Young One Ade is a fisherman’s friend

NOW here’s a fishy tale of two Edmondsons.

Actor Adrian Edmondson went out shrimping with West End fisherman Ray Edmondson for a new TV show.

And by the end of their trip, it’s fair to say that The Young Ones star had become a fisherman’s friend!

“He was great, smashing fella, really down to earth,” said Ray, who runs a fishmonger on Yorkshire Street.

“It was a nice day in May so it should show Morecambe in a good light.”

The Edmondsons went out in the shrimping boat Ray built himself 37 years ago.

Earlier Adrian walked on Morecambe Bay with Cedric Robinson, Queen’s Guide to the Sands.
