Andrew William Telford Coates, 41, of Buttermere Drive, Kendal, was killed together with Polly Sarah Connor, 46, of Sepulchre Lane, Kendal, at the weekend.

They died following an explosion and blaze at Ecclerigg, near Windermere, on Saturday.

They had been helping to stage a fireworks display at the wedding party of local insurance boss John Simpson and his bride, Nicole.

The fire is not being treated as suspicious but the police, fire service and other agencies are working to establish the circumstances and cause.

A tribute to Mrs Connor was paid by her mother earlier this week.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
