Pier closure suspicious

I was very pleased to see your comments on the website regarding the footbridge to Whitby pier.

We regularly visit Whitby, and will do so again next month, and it will be a big disappointment if we cannot go on the pier.

I too thought it was slightly suspicious that they discovered the footbridge was unsafe just as the main tourist season ended.

Please keep the pressure on Scarborough Council to repair this as soon as possible.
