Lack of road signage does not bode well

Although announced as reduced from 50mph to 20mph last week, the signage approaching and leaving the fracking site tells a different story and causes confusion and anger among drivers.

(L-R) Amanda Mitchell, Ellen Whitely and Irene James outside the Tyldesley Conservative Club in Blackpool, Lancs., All three women have been paid altogether �35,000 in damages by the club. See SWNS story SWSEXIST; A TORY social club must pay out �35,000 after sexists allegedly branded women members a witch and a cow  and prevented them joining the committee. Three women were awarded damages after a landmark legal challenge against the Conservative club. They say one committee man told a fellow male member that women would never serve on the committee as long as he had a hole in his a**e. Irene James, 67, also says she was told: Youre as welcome at this club as a turd at a wedding. Retired nurse Irene, housewife Amanda Mitchell, 45, and greengrocer Ellen Whiteley, 57, won an out-of-court settlement which included �3,000 �damages for each woman plus costs.

Resort public needs more transparency

I am never surprised by the personal insults the leader of this council hands out to anyone who dares to criticise his management, but in the article in regard to the £9.5 million interest paid by the council over the last two years, his defence seems to be both contradictory and dangerous (Gazette, March 2).
