Re the replica of Captain Cook’s Endeavour ship coming to stay in Whitby:

The story about this replica is that a chap (Andrew Fiddler) bought this ship for about £110,000 and has given it to Whitby to enable it to be held in Whitby harbour for ever more.

I am sure that all the Cook fans (me included) will be highly delighted and Whitby will make a good show of their new prize.

Also thank you for your feature of the 25 years since the Holbeck Hall Hotel collapsed – a jolly good show. Keep up the good work.
