Comedian's Warning Over Storm 'Dangerous' Damage
7:01am 14th April 2014
Urgent safety checks are being carried out on the Lizard - after an intervention by a TV star.
It is after David Baddiel tweeted about a hole in the sea wall at Coverack - and warned paths around the quay are dangerous.
The council says it does not have the money to fix everything after the storms - but is sending a team to check it is OK.
The comedian tweeted: "Dear @CornwallCouncil...what gives in Coverack? Huge hole in sea wall still unmended after months. Plus paths around quay dangerous."
Alex Folkes from County Hall replied: "Dear David, we know and we would love to be able to repair, but our total bill is £24m and we don't have that. We are bidding for that cash from Govt. In the meantime, all we can do is to make everything safe. But thanks for coming and please enjoy Cornwall despite our occasional imperfections."
The comedian replied insisting that parts of the area are not safe, leading to a promise from the council that a team will be sent to check the area on Monday.7:01am 14th April 2014
