The previous day, I watched as the council tractor drove its way around Cullercoats beach removing all the untidy seaweed that the twice daily inundation had thrown up onto the golden sands (soon to be frequented by teenagers intent on tombstoning or supping alcopops until totally legless).
Meanwhile, on the next door "Blue Flag"beach at Tynemouth Longsands, home to surfers brave enough to take on the North Sea, North Tyneside Council have spent lots of time and effort on restoring the dunes only to find that the winter weather make a heavy dent on their efforts (http://www.journallive.co.uk/north-east-news/todays-news/2010/03/30/erosion-at-tynemouth-beach-is-not-a-priority-61634-26134277/).
Well, is it any wonder!!!
It might also save some money? Now, as a Cooncil Tax payer, I am all for that!
