Basically, what takes days to truck in and put in place is swept away in hours, which is why, unless you build beach defences; i.e., groynes, you’re wasting your time and taxpayers money. And because the climate is changing, gales are becoming more frequent.
But not everybody wants these sea defences along their beaches, which is something that we will explain in another article.
