20120312 Goodbye Sarah Millican

Blackpool Comedy Carpet is being broken up because it is too near the tram track.

A spokesman for Blackpool Council is making the Comedy Carpet Company responsible for the "risk assessment".

Among the lost names are Sarah Millican, Bernard Miles, Little Tich, Jerry Lewis, Helen Atkinson-Wood, Kim Hartman and Cecil Parker.

"A work of art by Gordon Young, unveiled on October 10th 2011 by Ken Dodd OBE"

Will these be created elsewhere on the promenade?
