In advance of a protest by residents planned for Sunday 2 October about the closure of the footbridge that links Whitby’s west pier to the west pier extension, Scarborough Borough Council is issuing a safety warning to protestors.
Brian Bennett, the council’s Head of Tourism and Culture said:
“We accept that some local residents wish to conduct a protest about the temporary closure of the west pier footbridge. However, we must stress that people should not access the footbridge under any circumstances.
“We appeal to everyone to respect the closure and in doing so, protect their own safety.”
