Someone may know the answer to this - was the Granada Blackburn base merely a regional news office, similar to the Lancaster office at Whitecross? Or did it serve some other purpose at all please?

Yes Blackburn was a regional news office just like Chester and Lancaster. It opened in 1991.

Occasionally they would do a slot going to all the regional offices in the Granada Region.

Shame about the curt ending into the Weather sting, but that's live TV for you.

Any chance the video can be uploaded again. Believe it or not I missed it and don’t have copy of the programme as deleted.

I'm not very familiar with Lucy Meacock, but I gave that watch. Those tributes came across as genuine and very touching. Really nice.

Yeah Lucy is a legend and Granada Reports would not be the same without her!

Here is the song on the clip by the fantastic Lancashire Hotpots
