TV News features problems in Whitby Harbour

Regional TV News broadcast a feature on Whitby Harbour yesterday (link below). Reporter Kris Jepson was aboard Whitby’s retired lifeboat, the ‘Mary Ann Hepworth’ to see the cracks, slumps and voids in the ancient stonework of our piers. Skipper Barry Sneddon was able to bring the TV team up close with the neglected sea defences.

Later there was an interview with Richard Brewer, skipper of a Whitby trawler which  sank at its moorings in Whitby Harbour. A director Parkol Marine Ltd, which builds new trawlers in Whitby Harbour, was also interviewed, as was John Freeman, a former Mayor of Whitby.
