Ground investigation works have been completed in Clacton as part of the first stages of a coastal defence plan.

Construction should start next year at Clacton and Holland-on-sea with 25 fishtail groynes being installed and the beach being recharged.

It'll cost £30m but it won't be known until September if the Environment Agency will contribute £19m to the project.

A seafront path in Holland-on-Sea in Essex has been closed off on safety grounds.

The problem with the slope, which connects the Upper and Lower Promenades, was discovered by Tendring District Council engineering staff when they returned to work after the Christmas break.

It's hoped that the problem will be sorted out before the spring.
