Deleted section "Scotswood was socially destroyed in the early 1970s by the local housing council. The area became a dumping ground for less desirable tenants of the city after the downturn in industry. The area descended into chaos, dissolving the famous Geordie community spirit. Today, most of the original residents of Scotswood live in other parts of Newcastle, as a result of being forcibly evicted. Much of Scotswood has been demolished in an effort to bring new money to the area, as much of the scenic river valley is a gold mine for future real estate development." As it has no basis in reality and does not come close to meeting encyclopaedic standard. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:41, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
