I am amazed in this day and age no one whipped out their phone and youtubed it!

The old saying  'if my aunt had testicles she would be my uncle'. I have edited the wording not to offend the pc brigade. If people did a lot of things differently it might be a better place to live, but sadly that does not seem to be the case.

I appreciate the idea and reason behind switching off your engine when stationery, but if I did that with my old car it would break within a short space of time. So you are in a Q which keeps on stopping and starting e.g. towards Morrisons from Newton Abbot. Sometimes the Q is a mile long and you would have to switch your engine on/off approx 20-30 times depending how the traffic was behaving. ...

Could have made an effort to show some pics of the ACTUAL damage. Yes Morty, I do have some.

@leatash - a 3 metre wave describes the height of the wave not is volume. As to the sea hitting the trains.

The British politician is the master of procrastination when it does not effect them directly. You only have to walk along the beaches of Teignmouth and Dawlish to see how little, if any, maintenance is done to the ACTUAL sea wall. The first trains to run along this sea wall date back to around 1847. A 171 years of use and in that time this railway line has seen how much regular maintenance ...

The bits I hear in the Devon news article are:- restrict dog walkers cctv to assist in the enforcement of penalties for disobeying rules control substantially cut the number of winter visitors, but at the same time make those who do make the effort pay through the nose for parking. Then to top it off build a million pound plus visitor center which goes against the whole point of ...

How many council owned buildings are empty that could be refurbished to accomodation for those in need of shelter. If council's did not waste so much and spend so much on themselves then resources would be available for the basic needs of people, instead of the hair brained schemes they come up with on a regular basis. I wonder how many homes are empty because the owner has died and not left ...
