Bright ad sign is a danger

I am writing to express my dismay at the state of the ugly and dangerous advertising sign, which has recently been brought into use near Fellgate Estate, Jarrow.

It’s on the main route into South Shields and is an eyesore.

Worse still is it is very bright at night, making drivers avert their eyes as they approach the roundabout.

There will be an accident there soon if nothing is done.

How did it possibly get planning approval?
