Disgusting, disgraceful, shameful: Readers' anger over loss of Tolson, Dewsbury and Red House museums
Anger has erupted at Kirklees Council’s decision to close three museums.
Senior councillors dropped the axe on Huddersfield’s Tolson Museum, Dewsbury Museum and Red House Museum in Gomersal yesterday to the dismay of many.
A new Huddersfield museum will be created somewhere in the town centre.
