Councillor Evans was elected in May 2019 to represent the Westgate ward. For a time he served on the city council’s Cabinet and undertook the portfolio for economic recovery and resilience.

Above all he was a staunch advocate for his home town of Morecambe.

The Mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Joyce Pritchard, said: “Merv was a real champion for Morecambe, its residents and businesses.

“Along with everyone at Lancaster City Council I would like to pay tribute for his work over the years and send my deep condolences to the family.”

Details of funeral arrangements will be announced in due course.
