Letter of the week: Sunderland needs more shops rather than a new hotel

I am writing in disgust about the new hotel for the so called Sunderland city centre.

An artist's impression of how the hotel will look.

They should spend more money on getting more shops for the town centre.

It’s not a city centre and never will be.

You walk down High Street West and Fawcett Street and it’s full of pound shops and Greggs.

I don’t think we deserve to win city of culture, I really don’t, I am embarrassed to call it a city.
