However, Councillor Howe’s criticism of Sunderland Train Station was justified.

My family went on a train journey recently and as we were waiting inside our glorious station, I took a look around to see what he was going on about.

It was filthy and it stunk to high heaven. The glass ceiling was covered in bird droppings and general filth. The first impression anyone from outside Sunderland coming into our city via the station must wonder what the rest of our city is like.
