No, it was not Mrs Pankhurst

Over the years I have often turned a blind eye to spelling errors and minor inaccuracies in your paper, but this time you have gone too far. The idea of the leader of the suffragette movement, Emmeline Pankhurst, sitting down in front of a Worthing lamp-post to stop it being removed is quite ludicrous. Of course, it was our very own Pat Baring who saved this piece of Worthing heritage, as well as Beach House (among others), and I have often thought a road on any new estate should be named after her to remind us that one person’s determination can make a difference.
