The Conservative, who led the council from 2007-2011, received a standing ovation as he was awarded the top honour of Honorary Freeman in a full council chamber at Preston’s Town Hall.

Ken, who served on Preston Council for 36 years, described the ceremony as “exciting and humbling,” but said his greatest achievement in his life was marrying his wife, Sue.

Leader of Preston Council Coun Peter Rankin praised Ken’s achievement in building the Ribble Link, and his contribution to the city.
