The Betrayal of Blackpool

Martin Wainwright looks at the decline of Blackpool as a holiday resort. Numbers of visitors are falling sharply, the expected supercasino failed to materialise and the Labour Party conference has moved to the town's more glamorous cousin, Manchester. He explores the causes of the town's predicament and reports on plans for regeneration.
