Pembrokeshire County Council are finally considering a ‘special clean’ for Tenby’s dirty Prince Albert that overlooks the picturesque seaside town.

Local councillors have long called for the memorial statue that sits on Castle Hill to be given a good spruce-up, with renewed calls made ahead of last summer by the seaside town’s county councillor for the North ward Cllr Michael Williams.

Cllr Williams has once again contacted PCC’s environmental services operations manager Neil McCarthy this month to ask if Albert could have a ‘scrub’.

“He is a mess!” remarked Cllr Williams.

In response, Mr McCarthy stated that he has now approached specialist cleaners for a quote to carry out this work, as the statue is Grade 2 listed and classed as an historic monument.
