Tyson Fury’s dad John worked for local council for ’35p an hour’ digging up weeds to ‘keep Morecambe beautiful’

PROUD Tyson Fury had a cheeky pop at his dad after posting a video of him working with the local council to help “keep Morecambe beautiful”.

The WBC champion uploaded a video on Twitter two years ago of him digging up weeds and joked he would pay his father 35p for his efforts, which helped local charity Alley Champions.

Tyson said: “Go on dad, he’s working for the local council. Alley Champions we are.

“Go on dad, put your back into it, son. Come on, I’m going to pay you here, 35 pence an hour.”

Alley Champions was set up to try and transform community spaces.

A member said: “We just like to keep Morecambe beautiful.”

Fury himself has set up a campaign to help tackle littering in Lancaster.

The world heavyweight champion – who beat Deontay Wilder in a trilogy bout – also set up the ‘Tyson Fury Foundation’.

He wants to create boxing, football and rugby facilities in Morecambe.

Until recently, Fury lived in a five-bed, four-bathroom home worth around £550,000.

Inside the family home were links to the profession he will go down in history for.

Just next to a glass column holding the multitude of belts the heavyweight has won in his career was a framed picture of him after his win against Wladimir Klitschko on the wall.

But he upgraded to a £1.7m home around the corner a couple of years ago.
