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.
