Only three huts were available for a year-round lease, and three for the summer months, but there was still demand even for the winter lets.

The lucky ones to get a beach hut won't get the new keys until the new year, but today was a chance to check on their old huts and get ready to move to the new ones. Non-locals will get a chance to hire a hut from next Tuesday, October 14th. They're £100 a week in July and August, £15 to £35 a week through the rest of the year. And there are a few kept for one day hire.

People have been camping out overnight in Lyme Regis to try to secure one of 13 beach huts that are only available for local residents. A residents only booking day has been held this morning for the Cart Road day huts, with special consideration given to those who live in the town full-time. One woman has been camped out since Thursday.
