Sea wall at Torcross

Posted on: 12 February 2016

A section of the Torcross sea wall between Slapton and Beesands collapsed this morning (Friday 12 February), at high tide at around 9am.

Devon County Council has closed the road, the A379, while it is unsafe to use and intends to start work next week to repair damage to the highway. In the meantime diversions are in place.

Engineers from South Hams District Council and Devon County Council are onsite today assessing the condition of the sea wall in order to limit any further deterioration.
