FAMILY and friends said their last goodbyes to north Lancashire broadcaster and comedian Jim Bowen at Beetham Hall Crematorium yesterday (March 28).

Mr Bowen, who was best known as the host of darts-based game show Bullseye in the 1980s and 1990s, used to live in a disused Victorian house at the old railway station in Arkholme and was a former owner of the village's Redwell Inn.

He died, aged 80, on March 14.

A statement posted by the official Bullseye Facebook page said: "The celebration of Jim’s life was attended by close family and friends and was a heartwarming, loving and incredibly moving send off for Jim.

"A truly fitting service to say our fond farewells to a super, smashing, great husband, father, grandfather and friend, who was loved by millions."
