I READ Margo Grimshaw's column with interest every Tuesday, not just because we were brought up in the same street in Feniscowles many years ago, but because we seem to think in the same vein about Blackburn.

We like our town, but we don't like what is happening to it. Over the years it's been decimated by bad planners, not thinkers.

Don't get me wrong -- it's needed a facelift, but the way it's been done is awful, with bad roads, silly one-way systems and stupid statues. Need I mention more?

P BROADLEY (Mr), Beechwood Drive, Feniscowles, Blackburn.
