I notice that Labour are still trying to claim credit for getting the road built when it was really the campaigning of the people and Parish Council of Thornton. And let’s not forget that despite 13 years in Government Labour never gave the road the green light. It took the Coalition Government to do that but the credit goes to the people and Parish Council in my book every time!
