Chimney will be missed

ALBEIT a bit late now, but I would have thought that, as the Steetley chimney has become a bit of an iconic landmark for Hartlepool, it would have been saved from demolition.

It could have been painted, done up with lights, for example, with a flashing beacon at the top, and the rest of the area cleared for development.

When it goes, it will be missed, unlike the eyesore of the old ICI offices we people of Billingham have to endure!
