Scarborough sea defence protest

An environmental protest group is holding a demonstration today over plans for new sea defences around the Scarborough Spa complex.

Scarborough SOS - that stands for save our spa walls and surf - have gathered over 2,100 signatures on their online petition and they're aiming to get more support this bank holiday monday from the thousands of visitors to the resort. They say granite boulders would ruin the South Bay.
