Burnley MP defends town over slurs
2:06pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
BURNLEY MP Gordon Birtwistle has written to the editor of a national newspaper over a story which suggested the town was one of the ‘most dangerous places in the world’. The Daily Mail took images of places around the world from Google Streetview for the story, including a shot of Trafalgar Street before the WashWorx car wash opened.
Mr Birtwistle said: “A huge number of people in Burnley have worked tirelessly in recent years to change the image of our town. It’s sad when national newspapers just fall back on easy stereotypes rather than finding out the true facts.”
