Dangerous concrete blocks on beach

There are approximately 10 concrete blocks on the beach which were washed over from the sea defense barrier by the surge over 2 years ago. They are extremely dangerous as I found out recently when my dog ran into one of them and injured herself. She suffered very bad cuts and bruising and was lucky not to have broken any bones. The same could easily happen to a child. They are scattered on the beach between the prom and the old trafalgar slope. At times they are almost covered by the sand but at other times can protrude up to 18" out of the sand. Could they be moved back behind the metal barrier when the contractors are clearing the rubble from the bottom of trafalgar slope.

  • I heard from the council, and they have agreed to have the the concrete blocks moved back over the revetments when the contractors remove the rubble at the bottom of trafalgar slope in March. They did point out that the blocks are not always visible as they do become covered in sand with the change in beach levels so the contractor may not be able to find them. This is the case at the moment as the sand level on that section of beach is quite high.
