Benefit of warning signs praised after Holy Island trial

Warning signs on Holy Island have been praised after a two-week trial was carried out.

Concerns were raised last summer after a number of vehicles were stranded by the incoming tide.

For the last two weeks, signage has been placed on the causeway approach which advised motorists to check the tide tables.

Holy Island, which is also known as Lindisfarne, is only accessible at low tide and it can be reached twice-a-day by travelling along a three-mile long route which was constructed in 1954.

Mike Scott, from Northumberland County Council, told the BBC: "I think our initial view of the trial is that it has had some positive effect. I think we have got more lessons to learn and more improvements to make."

He added that many comments have been received by the public and these will be taken on board before permanent warning signs are put in place.

"What we want to do is make sure that tourists, islanders, everybody, has the right information about the dangers of the causeway," Mr Scott said.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801339403-ADNFCR
