Dawlish News

@leatash ....indeed it did, but with no explanation as to how the issue has miracously rectified.

Supposedly the work on the sea wall at Dawlish recommences this month. So what happened about the engineers checks saying the underlying sandstone was breaking. I assume they have been told they got it wrong?

A bit harsh putting Brian Downie in with this bunch. It clearly shows the poor bloke was suffering from a form of dementia. Your own article substantiates this. Usual poor news reporting by a sub standard news paper. Deepest sympathies to the victim and her family for the tragic loss.

You put tons of concrete onto permeable SANDSTONE that is soaked with sea water and the pressure of winter storms  and you are surprised it starts to give. I think building structures on soft foundations was never a good idea. I believe it may even be mentioned in the bible.

The only time you see her is when there is a national media event. Unlike many of her constituents she will be getting paid far above those who pay her salary, expenses, etc, etc and have to scrimp and save to pay their bills just to live. As for the £16 ...

Should have served 2 years, peice of dog poop

the difference is that the bude swans haven't had their power of flight taken away from them.
