A 99-year-old war hero whose vision led to the creation of Salford Quays has been awarded the freedom of the city.
Ben Wallsworth MBE was presented with the award in a special council meeting.
Mr Wallsworth, who represented the Blackfriars, Weaste and Langworthy wards as a councillor for 44 years, was also Salford's mayor from 2002-3.
Incumbent mayor Paul Dennett described the veteran as a "living legend", adding: "I hope we continue to do your legacy proud."
