Storms wash away new protection

Efforts to protect a section of coastline near Sidmouth have been hampered by recent stormy weather.

Cliffs at Pennington Point were to be shored up with shingle dredged from the River Sid.

But the shingle, left on the beach prior to being moved, has been washed away by high tides and bad weather.
