2014-15 Session
That this House notes that on 11 October 2014 an individual tried to cut into and steal the Eric Morecambe statue in Morecambe; further notes that Eric had to be taken down by Lancaster City Council for safety reasons; deplores the acts of an individual who carried out this atrocious act; congratulates Lancashire Police for its swift action at detaining a suspect; further congratulates CEO Mark Cullinan and his team at Lancaster City Council for taking action to ensure the statue can be repaired by the sculptor, Graham Ibbeson, who originally designed the statue, as soon as possible, with full funding from the insurance company; and hopes that Eric can be restored and back on the promenade where he belongs by Christmas.
