High tides and strong winds have punched a large hole in the Vazon sea wall

High tides and strong winds have battered Guernsey's coast line.

Strong winds and waves have punched a large hole in the centre of the Vazon sea wall and sand has drained through the hole into the bay.

Staff from States Works visited the site, opposite La Grande Mare, and knocked down what remained of the sea wall.

The team then reinforced the breach ahead of high tide.

The Vazon sea wall, opposite La Grande Mare, was examined by States Works engineers
