A council that spent over £106,000 on installing communal barbecues on a seafront promenade had to close them over cleanliness issues.
The electric cooking stations were opened to great fanfare two weeks ago by officials in Bournemouth, Dorset.
Users are meant to clean up the grills after they have finished with them but most people aren't bothering.
