Bude Beach 'Like A War Zone'
7:07am 11th July 2014
There are calls to tidy up Bude's main beach after the winter storms left it looking like "a war zone".
A cliff wall came down and littered rocks across Summerleaze.
That is as well as sand being stripped away.
Tourist Information Director Paul Tilzey is worried that the RNLI cannot see out of their station because the sand dunes have got so high.
They say that the view is restricted but does not affect their operations.
Mr. Tilzey is also concerned that children could get hurt and it could put off tourists from coming back to Bude.
He tells us more should be done to fix the problem, he said: "My concern is visitors who come to Bude for the very first time and the tide is in won't see the stones, they'll go for a walk on what they assume is a nice sandy beach, and they'll smash their ankles and feet on these large rocks.
"A lot of the sand from the sand dunes could be moved and placed on the beach during the busy six weeks, the sand will eventually blow back onto the sand dunes anyway so it's only recycling it, but it will provide the right experience for our guests to the town."
