Eric Morecambe, undoubtably one of the funniest men of our time, who was tragically taken from us in 1984 after a heart attack. He and Ernie Wise will always be remembered for the words of their theme song "Bring me laughter, bring me sunshine, bring me love". Unfortunately when we visited his statue on Morecambe Promenade on a sodden Saturday afternoon, even the birds didn't seem to have the enthusiasm to raise a cry; but the bronze seagull looking up at him from his perch at the bottom of the steps seemed to have a wry smile on his face. Perhaps he could see the sunshine that we couldn't.
