The statue was missing as it is away being repaired. I think it was vandalised which is such a shame. The area around it, however, has been landscaped very nicely and is a credit to the people of Morecambe. I shall return sometime to see Eric.

A credit to Morecambe for honouring one of their own. Well worth the visit on the sea front. Excellent

For me it was one of the most famous things about Morecambe, as the picture comes up constantly, when you look for anything about the town. I enjoyed speaking about it with a local person, who told me about the person Eric Morecambe, whom I didn't know.

Made a special trip this morning in what could only be described as terrible weather conditions to see Eric back where he belongs, I came to see him a few weeks ago without realising he had been taken away but am thrilled to have seen him being put back together again. And how appropriate to see the BBC news crew... More

Great to see Eric back where he belongs. On a wild and blustery day, it was a pleasure to go and see the Eric Morecambe statue back where he belongs. He was gone for several weeks for repair so I hope there weren't too many disappointed visitors to the area who came to visit when he wasn't there.

Even though we live locally,the statue always makes us smile.There's always some visitors having their photos taken,doing Eric's 'bring me sunshine' dance thing he used to do at the end of the show. A MUST if you're visiting Morecambe.

Can't believe someone tried to steal this! Hope Eric repaired and back in situ soon! Was a shame that this was completely missing and the site protected by barrier fencing

Due to some mindless individual trying to destroy the statue, it has been removed for repair. To date there has not been a date for the return.
