PAVING: Dug up in just three weeks

Tarmac has just been laid instead of paving stones along St James’ Estate and Augur Terrace in Alnwick by Northumberland County Council

Imagine my surprise and disgust when no more than three weeks after being laid, the electricity supplier has dug it up to do ‘essential’ improvement work.

I wonder which bright spark planned this. What a waste of money.
