Last Sunday, after an organised beach football event down at Pits Wall End on the Saturday, which brought in around 750-1,000 beach goers to this area of the beach - of which Bridlington Council must have been aware of such a sizeable event – why didn’t the council make adequate provision to prevent the litter disaster?

The recent cut in bus services within Bridlington and surrounding areas is causing many elderly people much distress.

Letter: We deserve a fully functional hospital

With the town trying to build its image from the time warp of the 1970s, East Riding of Yorkshire has so far spent about £20 million on rebuilding the Spa and Leisure World and a brand new hotel, which they seem to ignore the most obvious item every town the size of Bridlington requires. A regular and operational hospital.

Letter: Uplifting Brid: give your priorities...
