The think tank The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) has today said that some British seaside towns such as Rhyl in North Wales were becoming 'dumping grounds' for vulnerable people. The report 'Turning the Tide' has monitored conditions in five seaside towns, Rhyl in Denbighshire, Margate in Kent, Clacton-on-Sea in Essex, Blackpool in Lancashire and Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. In one area of Rhyl, over 66% of working-age people were found to be dependent on out-of-work benefits. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
