Legal action threat over Fairbourne sea retreat

8 March 2014 Last updated at 11:44 GMT

Residents of a coastal community in Gwynedd are considering legal action against plans that would see their village abandoned to the sea.

Fairbourne is expected to enter into "managed retreat" in 2025 when the council will stop maintaining defences due to rising sea levels.

Residents said they had not been consulted, and the plan needed further research.

Gwynedd council said it had been open with residents throughout the process.

The issue was highlighted in BBC Wales' Week In Week Out programme last month.

On Radio Wales, Peter Johnson, spoke to Pete Cole, chair of Fairbourne Facing Change Community Action Group.
