Anyone with an interest in local news, local culture and local politics should visit The Whitby Independent immediately. It's essentially an online newspaper with a Free Whitby agenda.
TWI is described as an independent newsblog edited by Whitby resident, former newspaper journalist and editor Peter McGrath. You can leave comments on stories such as the swine flu outbreak in Danby, Scarborough Borough Council's plan to shore up the disintegrating piers with unsightly rocks, or why our fishing fleet is likely to be reduced to no more than window dressing in the not too distant future.

It's a must-read, and it costs nowt.
