Its' aim is to promote efficient, orderly and fair financial markets and help retail financial service consumers get a fair deal.

The FT is pink, a global financial resource and required reading for anyone in the industry. You won't get very far into the site before you are asked to subscribe.

Well staffed helpful bank just like all the others in the country, in the precinct so you have to walk there, there is no immediate car park though there are plenty of car parks in the area which you have to pay for even if you have a disabled badge, there are no steps to the entrance.

Nice clean bank. Pleasant staff.

Inland Revenue's Internet service for self assessment. In common with most Government sites it looks as though it was designed by an undertaker. However, once we had gone through the long winded verification process, we did manage to pay our personal tax in minutes without the site crashing which was great.

Sadly the site is still a work in progress if you have a partnership or a trust. Incredibly these organisational forms still require third party software to enter their accounts. Remarkably HMRC seem quite happy with this situation!

Scarborough Borough Council

Town Hall, St Nicholas St, Scarborough YO11 2HG, UK – 01723 232323

Last time I visited Scarborough was 30 years ago. So we decided it was time to visit. Much of Scarborough hadn't changed. The big difference this time ,I am now disabled and in a wheelchair. To my dismay I couldn't believe in 2017 the amount of buildings I couldn't get in. Restaurants , Public Houses , Amusement Arcades , Shops etc. I know Scarborough is a old holiday town but a few ramps or lowered steps would make a massive difference to me and other disabled people. Has nice as Scarborough was I will not be revisiting. I felt excluded and embarrassed. Ian Lamb
