A plaque is to be unveiled in memory of a popular councillor and the work he did to help his local park.

Family and friends of Tony Lee will gather at Watson Road Park on Friday for the unveiling of a memorial plaque.

Among those attending will be councillors including Coun David O’Hara who worked alongside Mr Lee in Waterloo ward.

Blackpool South MP Gordon Marsden is also due to be in attendance with people arriving from 4pm, and the unveiling taking place at 5pm.

Father-of-four Mr Lee, who was 71, died in July 2014 after falling ill on holiday.

He had represented Waterloo ward on Blackpool Council for the Conservatives since 2007 and served as deputy mayor in 2010/11.

Last year, a memorial plaque was also unveiled at Blackpool South train station on Waterloo Road in recognition of work done there.
