The 'News' reported how elected North Coast Councillor Alex Gallagher had spoken of his belief that recent severe storm damage to the promenade now represented an opportunity for a "major upgrade", turning it into an attraction to rival popular holiday resorts.

However, at last week's meeting of Largs Community Council, those present cast doubt over Labour member Mr Gallagher's assertions - while some slammed the 'third world' state of the prom long BEFORE any storm damage had taken place. SNP Councillor Alan Hill stated: "I would be gobsmacked if Councillor Gallagher got money for that. It WILL be repaired, but there's damage to the sea walls in Millport and Fairlie, and problems in Ardrossan, and problems in Saltcoats."
