A dredger has been close to shore this month to sort out the shingles. ‘Sospan Dau’ discharges shingle onto the beach just before high tide because the shingle, which acts as a flood defence for the town, is constantly moving so needs to be replaced or recycled.The work was originally meant to take place October 7-13 but is still ongoing due to mechanical failures for the dredger. A council spokesperson said: “[The Sospan Dau] is now back but we are in the hands of the weather and sea conditions as to when the work can take place. If the conditions are favourably this essential beach protection work will complete very soon.
