Families will be able to enjoy views across Chorley as a giant ferris wheel rolls into town tomorrow.

Work has been taking place this week to erect the big wheel on the Flat Iron car park in Chorley and the first ride will be at 10am tomorrow.

“We’ve brought the ferris wheel back after people requested it and we’re looking forward to seeing lots of people enjoying the attraction and having a good time.”
