A project to protect Lyme Regis from rising sea levels has taken a step forward.

West Dorset District Council has appointed a new contractor to improve safety measures along the coastline.

Civil Engineering firm Dean and Dyball will build 390 metres of new sea wall and carry out extensive work to stabilise slopes at Church Cliff and East Cliff.The project will protect 480 nearby homes from damage caused by coastal erosion and landslips.

A 900 metre stretch of road and underground power cables will benefit from the work too. Work is expected to start next Spring at the cost of nearly £20 million.
