ENVIRONMENT: Town looks run-down

It was a nice day so I decided to walk along the sea front from Tynemouth to Whitely Bay.

It was very pleasant until I turned the corner of the Rex Hotel and went up the street where all the pubs are. What any eye-opener.

I could not believe how dirty it was. Going into the town centre was the same.

I find it very sad that the council would let a little gem of a town become so run-down.

Will any tourist remember Whitley Bay for the right reason?

I doubt it, shameful.
