Milford on Sea and Hurst Spit
Following extensive damage to this area of coast, intensive work has been undertaken to make the area safe as well as clearing up and making repairs.
The storm resulted in around 50,000 tonnes of shingle being washed away form Hurst Spit - that's around 5000 lorry loads! Parts of the Spit that were nine meters wide had been reduced to less than a meter but repair work is progressing well. Please take caution when visiting the area as there is heavy machinery in operation. Please also take notice of any signs or fenced off areas.
