Plaque tribute plan to comic

COMIC Will Hay, the much-loved comedian of the 1930s who made his name at performances in Belper, is among the names put forward for a Derbyshire County Council blue plaque.

The scheme, which was launched in 2009, celebrates local heroes, famous people and buildings of historic importance. People nominated must have been dead for at least 20 years. The shortlist will be revealed next month and six winners will be announced in September.
