Blackpool council, Lancashire; caused by the death of Labour councillor Eddie Collett at the age of 58. A college lecturer, Collett had served on Blackpool council since 1991(when it was still a district under Lancashire county council), except for the period 2007-11, and was mayor of Blackpool in 2013-14. In tribute to one of the prime movers behind Blackpool’s regeneration, the council arranged for a pair of bulldozers to greet well-wishers at Collett’s wake in the town hall.
