People with dogs coming to our coastline is a big revenue earner and to ban dogs from all beaches, in my opinion, would be a very blinkered and ignorant act IF the council did implement such an economically disasterous action. As with most restrictions in the U.K. on freedom whether that be speech, movement or just living your life the way you want without negatively effecting those around ...

@Mond - Denying your freedom of speech...IN MY OPINION I think you excercise your freedom of speech on many occassions at the expense of the many unfortunate souls who have posted on here that you did not agree with. As to your remark on whether I was or wasn't a police officer should really be of no concern to you one way or another. The fact that you bring it up on so many threads would seem ...

Could have made an effort to show some pics of the ACTUAL damage. Yes Morty, I do have some.

@leatash - a 3 metre wave describes the height of the wave not is volume. As to the sea hitting the trains. Why not build a high rock wall (rock armour) some distance from the line, running parallel to it. This would stop the waves from hitting with any force, so allowing the poorly designed trains to navigate the Dawlish track during bad weather. A similar idea to the work that was ...

Nothing changes on this site, no wonder the site has done a nose dive, Everyone has a right to express their own opinion's on this site, but without the need for the typical backlash that so often wait for it.

Considering the pub round the back has closed down I would have thought they wouldn't have a problem getting it, but right on the sea front and busy main road... serving alcohol till late may be not a good idea for the peace and quiet.
