Letter: Whitby ‘would not get a blue flag now’

Have your say

I visited the lovely seaside town of Whitby this last week and must admit that I was disappointed, especially bearing in mind that the town currently has a blue flag award for excellent beaches.

On entering the beach at the end of the pier I had to step over large quantities of driftwood and seaweed.

Not the kind of image that you would have expected at such a lovely place.

The local authorities need to get their act in order as if there was a beach inspection now they would not receive a blue flag award.
