Category: Gateshead, Tyne and Wear - not much point in keeping it

+7 votes
The profiles attached to Category: Gateshead, Tyne and Wear all pre-date the existence of Tyne and Wear.  Gateshead, County Durham, is the natural place to park these profiles. The structure set up for Yorkshire and other counties is a good model to use. Gateshead, Tyne and Wear can go.

Makes sense to me to put it in County Durham if we are trying to avoid duplicate categories where the authority has changed.
