Could anyone tell me why we have concrete planters in Blackpool, they serve no purpose whatsoever they are just full of weeds and rubbish.

Divisive development in modern society

Your story about a girl being told by members of the public to jump from the top of a high building, an action that would almost certainly have caused her death, is horrifying but not surprising.

Court surroundings are in terrible state

I recently had occasion to visit the Blackpool Magistrates’ Court via the steps in Chapel Street and was appalled by the dilapidated state of the steps and terracing, including the flower bedded area surrounding the Court buildings.

Grammars do not help social mobility

It took less than a month, but Prime Minister Theresa May’s new Government appears to be floating another massive change to education policy – the re-introduction of grammar schools. I’m sure this announcement will gain favour from some, but Gazette readers should ask themselves a question.

Council shouldn’t need to hold hands

So, regarding Peter Aston’s letter (‘Choked by dust cloud’, Your Say, Gazette, August 8) I can’t help wonder where he and all who stood in the path of the downdraft thought the dust from the Layton flats demolition would go?

I was stunned by your recent story “Layton Flats Demolition A ‘Success’” (Gazette, August 2). From where I was standing (down wind of the ensuing dust cloud) it was one of the most alarming experiences I’ve ever encountered.

It’s no secret that the tram system recently had its most successful year in over a decade, and has been on an upward trend in terms of passengers and revenue since the 2012 upgrade.
