TRIBUTES were paid to Fisherman’s Friend boss Doreen Lofthouse after her death at 91.
She transformed the throat lozenge into a global brand during 50-plus years at the helm.
Mrs Lofthouse and late husband Tony took over the family business in Fleetwood, Lancs, in 1963.
She also gave tens of millions of pounds to community projects through The Lofthouse Foundation — leading many to call her the “Mother of Fleetwood”.

The lozenges were developed in 1865 by pharmacist James Lofthouse using liquorice, eucalyptus and menthol to aid fishermen with croaky throats.
Fisherman’s Friend is now sold in more than 100 countries.
