Residents are demanding a wider sea wall to protect their homes and the railway at Dawlish. Work is now taking place to reopen the line destroyed during the winter storms. Network Rail is promising to get the first services running on 4 April but people living in the town say action should also be taken to keep their homes safe.
Network Rail now has concrete defences in place and can start rebuilding up to the height of the track but final decisions on the width of the outer sea wall and the walkway are yet to be taken.
