Tribute paid to a true Scouser.

MOURNERS were gathering today to pay their final respects to Quentin Hughes, one of the most tireless champions of Liverpool's historic and architecturalimportance.

Mr Hughes passed away in the city he loved on May 8, aged 84. A strictly private funeral service was being held today.

A memorial to the architect, soldier and historian -a passionate advocate of his home city's significance on the world stage -will be held at a later date.

Among his many achievements he founded Liverpool's Victorian Society, and was chairman of the Mersey Civic Society for many years.

His 1964book, Seaport: Architecture and Townscape in Liverpool, described it as the finest Victorian and Edwardian city in Britain.

In 1999,he produced the definitive Liverpool: City of Architecture.

James Quentin Hughes was born in Liverpool on February 28,1920.

During World War II he was also involved in sabotage missions for the SAS in Italy.
