It is indeed situated outside Morrisons HQ in Bradford.

Graham also created the statue of Eric Morecambe on Morecambe seafront and also the Eric and Ernie statue in the Winter Gardens at Blackpool.

He also did my favourites Stan and Ollie in Ulverston. :smile:

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We stopped buying any kind of newspaper years ago. Even with the dailies I came to the conclusion that there was no point paying for something that contains yesterdays news and someone else's opinion. I can get current news and plenty of comment via TV and radio and if I want to do a crossword I wi...
