Storm victims in Preston in Weymouth are being invited to a drop-in session about the recent bad weather to get information and advice.

Residents living near Preston Beach Road can go along to give their views on how they were affected by the road and beach closure and to find out more about the Preston Sea Defence Scheme.

Neil Watson, coastal engineer from the Environment Agency said:

'We understand this can be a daunting time for the community and all agencies involved will be on hand to answer any questions residents may have recent events in an open and honest manner.'

The Environment Agency, emergency planners, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council engineers and local geologists will be at the session to speak with local people and answer any questions.

Dorset Coast Forum, who have organised the event, hope it will put people at ease about the situation.

The event has already seen a good response on social media, especially on the Love Weymouth and Portland Facebook page, where the storm has created a strong community feel.

The Dorset Coast Forum is an independent coastal partnership who work along the coast.

The event is being held at The Spyglass Pub, Overcombe, on Wednesday 26 February, 4pm - 7pm.
