Fundraising's up and running for a statue of Bobby Ball in Lytham

Anyone who ever had a laugh with the wonderful Bobby Ball will never forget him.

Now fundraising has started for a statue of Bobby to stand in Lytham, the town he called home.

And that fundraising has just had a big boost as our entertainment correspondent Caroline Whitmore's been finding out.
