Kiosks in Skegness

Comments (0)

Last night a tidal surge battered the East Coast which was the worst to hit the East Coast in 60 years.

The flood defences held back some of the water in Skegness but were breached.

The water surged through and flooded the pier.

The flooding went up to the Clock Tower the paths were ripped up in places, the shelters are partly damaged and the kiosks on the seaward side of the sea defences have been gutted by the waves.
