A SANDSTORM is settling in Selsey, as work continues to create a new beach at a holiday park.

Bunn Leisure is pumping 12,713,280 cubic feet of sand into the shore as part of £16.8m coastal protection works.

It is the second phase of a six-month engineering programme to protect the park’s coastline from flooding and erosion.

Phase one saw the construction of two huge off-shore rock breakwaters, each with a two-acre footprint stretching 180 metres out to sea.

The firm’s Mike Caven said: ‘We want to be sure we protect one of our greatest assets – this amazing beach – not only for today’s holidaymakers but also for those of tomorrow.’
