Visitors to Fort Victoria Country Park near Yarmouth are being urged to take extra care following the partial collapse of a section of the sea wall.

Crashing waves have been able to breach the coastal defence resulting in a sinkhole opening up beneath a section of concrete walkway. The concrete has collapsed as a result, rendering the area unsafe.

Barriers have been erected around the area.

They have done nothing at East Cowes in 5+ years, they won’t do anything at Fort Vic. The council may do something as it’s a sea defence problem.
