An explanation of the Lancashire dialect has been released in the latest in a series for Koreans visiting the UK.

Korean Billy has been translating various British dialects for foreign visitors – and those from London too.

He covers off the likes of Corporation Pop, jiggered and it’s crackin’ flags.

In his video explanation he gives a bit of background about each phrase and then runs through an example sentence comparing a typical British phrase to the Lancashire version.

The Harris Museum and Art Gallery appears in the back-drop as he explains all things Lanky.
