Creating a bad impression.

LAST Sunday I was in Middlesbrough bus station at 9am and was disgusted at the state of the ladies' toilet. At least three cubicles had toilet roll dispensers hanging off the wall, the remainder contained no toilet roll and one had no seat. There was paper strewn on the floor of some cubicles. I eventually used the disabled facility, the least disgusting of them all but even that had a paper-strewn floor. In addition, only one soap dispenser contained any soap. At that hour on a Sunday morning I would have expected the facility to be pristine, instead of which it was quite the most horrific of any I have ever seen.

If there is vandalism to this extent surely it would be cost-effective to employ a supervisor to ensure it does not happen? For a gateway to the town for people coming in from other areas it is appalling, and to think that the town has previously vied for city status is risible. The impression created was much more like entering a ghetto town, and I would have been ashamed to admit I come from anywhere near this area.
