ADDRESS: Share the confusion

editorial image

Having lived in Seaton Delaval for almost four years, I share Mr Cadle’s concerns and confusion as to whether he lives in Tyne and Wear or Northumberland, (News Post Leader, August 9).

It is only the signs on entering Seaton Delaval that convince me that I do actually live in Northumberland.

Some of my incoming correspondence is addressed for Tyne and Wear and some for Northumberland.

All outgoing correspondence is stated as being Northumberland/Tyne and Wear.

That said, I will only be convinced that I live in Northumberland when the correct telephone area code changes from 0191 to 01670, the Tyne and Wear and Northumberland telephone codes respectively.
