Lyme Regis harbour surface causes safety concerns

Lyme Regis' harbour, which is surrounded by numerous warning signs, has been regarded as a danger to the public due to its slippery surface.

The harbour's non-slip coating has now eroded, meaning that its surface is now smooth and could easily cause people to fall. As a result, there is a £25,000 bill for the damage, which the harbourmaster believes must be paid, reports Bridport News.

Harbourmaster Grahame Forshaw told the news provider: "It has just worn out. It was coated with an epoxy coating with grit when the slipway was first constructed years ago."

Mr Forshaw noted that the slipway has simply come to the end of its useful life, so the £25,000 fee must be paid in order to keep the public safe.

The Galloway News has revealed that safety signage on a number of Scottish beaches are in need of repair.

These signs provide water quality updates and are fitted at beaches including Dhoon Bay and Sandyhills.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800696369-ADNFCR
