WORK to remove three groynes from the seafront at Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve will take place this week.

The three, 16-18, are being removed for safety reasons.

Contractors appointed by the Environment Agency have been given access to the rail track to crane equipment over the railway as the bridge is too small to enable them to take equipment under the line.

The work to remove the groynes is expected to be completed before the Easter bank holiday weekend and the contractors will do all they can to minimise any disruption to visitors to that part of the beach.
