Lowestoft disappointment on YouTube

I TYPED in the word Lowestoft on YouTube in a moment of curiosity and was really disappointed at what I found.

There were a lot of silly songs about the bascule bridge and roadworks holding up traffic up.

I use YouTube as a reference when I'm going on holiday to watch other people's holiday clips of the destination. I'm sure there are people who will use it for the same thing when thinking of travelling to Lowestoft and be put off by what they see.

As tourism is one of the biggest industries in the town I think it is of everyone's interest to paint a good picture in the media. This will have a knock on effect with the state of the roads in the town.

I think people should upload some positive images of Lowestoft and those who have put those silly little ditties on there should be ashamed of themselves and delete them.

Lowestoft is a lovely town at the end of the day and I really wouldn't want to live anywhere else despite the bridge and the road works.
