I was amused to read in your on-line edition the letter from Brenda Green of Pickering.
This is political correctness gone mad.
Whilst I sympathise with Ms Green on her disability (I suffer shortness of breath from my heart problems) surely Ms Green is joking?
Tarmac Church Street? What next? Remove the 199 Steps and install a ramp so Ms Green can ride her disability scooter up to the East Cliff?
Don’t get me going on disability scooter riders and their total disregard for any other street users.
I’ve almost been crippled myself from the knocks I’ve taken from them.
Tarmac Church Street indeed!
