'Serious' lack of safety signs at erosion hotspot

A councillor has warned that there is a serious lack of safety signs alerting residents and visitors of an Eastbourne town about the danger of a footpath erosion hotspot on its seafront.

According to the Eastbourne Herald, part of the promenade on Seaford's seafront has dropped into the sea after the recent severe weather.

Town councillor Bob Brown is concerned about the lack of warning signs at the spot and has written to Seaford's MP to flag up the issue.

The newspaper quoted Mr Brown as saying in a letter to Norman Baker that the only safety measure taken is the use of some safety tape "in the vicinity of the collapsed area, but not marking it".

"Neither has any sign been erected to warn the public that part of the promenade has collapsed," he also wrote.

The situation is being hampered because there is a dispute over who should take responsibility for the matter, with tenant Lewes District Council and the Crown Estate Commissioners both denying responsibility, the newspaper said.

A spokesperson for the council said it would work with Crown Estates so that a sign can be erected as soon as possible.

Last month, the Courier reported that warning signs would be installed at a stretch of eroded shoreline in Broughty Ferry, Dundee.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800284090-ADNFCR
