A SPECIAL flag is flying from County Hall in Preston to mark Armed Forces Day on behalf of Lancashire County Council.

It was presented to Coun Kevin Ellard, chairman of Lancashire County Council, at a special ceremony involving Lord Shuttleworth, the Lord-Lieutenant of Lancashire.

The flag will fly until Armed Forces Day this Saturday.

Councillor Ellard said: "This flag highlights the county council's appreciation of the contribution made by the UK's armed forces - past and present.

"People place their lives on the line when they serve in the armed forces. It's important that we take a moment to acknowledge their dedication.

"This year in particular, in the centenary year, we're looking back to the contribution made by Lancashire's men and women during the First World War."
