Andy Capp - Hartlepool
Andy Capp is a cartoon strip character published in the Daily Mirror since 1957. The author was Reg Smythe, born, in my home town of Hartlepool, in 1918. Although Reg died in 1998, Andy Capp has carried on.
Jean Smythe, widow of Reg , unmasked the 5ft high bronze sculpture in the town's Headland area in 2007
