Hurst Spit damaged by storm

Emergency repairs have been carried out on Hurst Spit after the path was narrowed by waves breaking over the top.

Natural England and the Environment Agency agreed to bring forward shingle moving work due in March after reports of the storm damage.

The incident is a reminder of how dangerous the shoreline can be in storms such the one hitting us today, St Valentine’s Day.
