Saturday saw the streets of London celebrate National Historic County Flags Day which included the Red Rose of Lancashire flying over Parliament Square in the capital city.

Bury North MP James Daly was in London for the event and have his backing on the borough to re-join Lancashire.

He would prefer the borough to be part of Lancashire County Council rather than be connected to Greater Manchester.

In a video on his Facebook page, Mr Daly said: “As you can see, I’m in London with Big Ben behind me.

"It's National Historic County Flags Day today (Saturday) and as you can see here, the great Red Rose of Lancashire flying in front of Big Ben in Parliament Square.

“It’s a really wonderful thing to celebrate the historic county of Lancashire and also as we’ve been talking about, there is a political element as well.

“I have for a long time thought that Bury should maintain its historic political links with Lancashire and be part of Lancashire County Council rather than within Greater Manchester and I would welcome any views in respect of that.

“It’s great to see the red rose flying here in central London with Big Ben in the background and it’s a great statement of how proud all my constituents are to be from the historic county palatine of Lancashire.”

With the recent introduction of the clean air zone, Mr Daly is asking the question of whether the people of Bury feel closer to Greater Manchester or Lancashire.
