We now have a ghost town

Ian Lavery sent two men to the Market Place in Bedlington with a petition for Tesco to tidy up the waste land next to the supermarket.

The land needed tidying for years before Tesco bought the store.

Is the MP trying to take the onus from the council, which has let Bedlington turn into a virtual ghost town by putting the blame on Tesco’s doorstep?
