Single Street: Emergency repairs on breached sea wall

Engineers have begun work on repairing a hole in a sea wall left by last week's tidal surge.

The wall, at Shingle Street in Suffolk, was built after the 1953 floods and was among 22 places on the county's coast where sea and river walls were breached.

The scale of the damage in coastal areas is still being assessed by the Environment Agency which is dealing initially with the most urgent emergency repairs where people and property have been left at risk.
