Letter: 13,000 people - but only four were at Whitby town assembly

On Wednesday, the annual Whitby Town Assembly took place.

In the 2011 census: Whitby population – 13,213.

Attendance at the meeting – 8.

That figure of eight included the mayor, a town councillor taking the minutes, two other town councillors and four, yes four, members of the general public.

Shocking.
