View spoilt by weeds

TAKE a walk along the cliff from Kensington Gardens to the Claremont Pier, looking east. It's one of the ugliest, and most frustrating, scenes you'll ever encounter.

TAKE a walk along the cliff from Kensington Gardens to the Claremont Pier, looking east. It's one of the ugliest, and most frustrating, scenes you'll ever encounter.

A beautiful beach almost totally obscured by head-high weeds, a tatty evergreen hedge, and the combination of a crumbling concrete wall patched up with wooden palings that would disgrace a building site.

Contrast it to Gorleston, where the cliffs have no walls or other barriers and the grass (not weeds) is regularly mown.

Why cannot we be the same?
