Wanton vandalism of Spion Kop

Browsing through on-line editions of the Gazette I was flabbergasted to see the eyesore that has appeared on Spion Kop that destroys one of the most iconic views of Whitby.

What has the world come to when local government commits such wanton vandalism? I presume the standard excuse of ‘Health and Safety’ will rear its ugly head. Why not put a fence around every footpath that runs by the main road in the interests of ‘Health and Safety’? It makes more sense than erecting the ugly monstrosity that has appeared.

Maybe all local councillors should be fathered by aliens? Then at least more sense might be got from them.
